As an end unit, this rowhouse is designed to fit in to the long row facades, even though it's entry is around the corner from the other houses. 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.
