Howard E. Satterfield, builder
Raleigh, Wake County
931 Vance St. (Hayes Barton), Raleigh, NC
One of the most unusual residences in Hayes Barton, the stuccoed house combines symmetrical massing and sleek, blocky forms in what has been described as a Prairie-style modernist design; it originally had a balustrade that gave it a more classical and Spanish Mission flavor. It is credited to Satterfield in the Satterfield building list and the Hayes Barton National Register nomination. The architect, if any, or published design source is unknown. It is possible that the client, Eugene McGinnis of the New England Mutual Life Insurance Company, had seen such a house in another community or in a publication and asked Satterfield to recreate it.
