Small estate house, possibly one build with the Post Office (q.v.). Late medieval
origins, probably remodelled in the C17, C20 alterations including new partitions.
Creamwashed rendered cob on stone rubble footings; thatched roof with a plain ridge,
gabled at left end; left end stack.
Plan: Single depth plan, 2 rooms wide with a central entrance facing a straight
stair. Part of the roof at least is smoke-blackened indicating the origins of the
house as an open hall of late medieval date. It may have been one build with the
Post Office, adjoining at the right, but the Post Office has a higher ridge line and
may have been raised. The partitions flanking the stair in Potters appear to be C20
and it is difficult to judge the early ground plan.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2 window front, the eaves thatche eyebrowed over 2
first floor windows. Central C20 plank front door with a slated porch hood flanked
by C19 or C20 3-light timber casements with glazing bars. 2 first floor C20 3-light
casements with square leaded panes.
Interior: Chamfered crossbeam to ground floor right.
Roof: 2 side-pegged jointed cruck roof trusses, the front foot of the left hand truss
dressed off for the insertion of the window. The right hand truss apex was inspected
on survey. This is smoke-blackened retaining sooted thatch, rafters and battens.
A traditional house of medieval origins, part of the centre of an outstanding
unspoiled estate village and one of 8 closely-spaced medieval houses.
