The cluster of houses at 8-20 Snows Court were designed and built in 1884 by Oliver Cox for developer Edwin Greer. Nos. 10-20 are extremely simple rowhouses, lacking any ornamental or architectural design.
The doors are at ground level, and generally lack ornamental features. The windows have shutters. The buildings end without a cornice.
No. 16 has a lot size of 450 sq. ft. and about 700 sq. ft. of living space for one bed and one bath.
