The Potter Residence was constructed between 1927 and 1928 in lower Manoa Valley. It is significant as being part of suburban development in the College Hills area during the ealy part of the 20th century. The residence is also noteworthy as an intact example of a Tudor Revival cottage in Hawaii, and represents the work of master architect Mark Potter. Although this cottage is a simplified version lacking many of the decorative details typically associated with the style, its steeply pitched roof and dominant facade gables place this structure in the Tudor Revival family. The residence has not undergone any major alterations and remains largely as originally built. It thus possesses a high degree of historic integrity.
