According to the title deeds dated 1869, Snodgrass, the local builder and descendant of Robert Snodgrass, mason in Beith in the early 19th century, built the house probably for himself. Snodgrass is also thought to have speculatively built other properties on Dalry Road at the roughly same time, consisting of semi-detached villas and single storey and attic villas. A pair of semi-villas at Nos 24-26 Dalry Road has interesting triangular features. Certainly No 10 Dalry Road has some comparable features such as the triangular-shaped 'arches' in the upstairs corridors. There is also an unusual timber Gothic-style screen on the stair at the half-landing. The drawing room has a fine chimneypiece and good plasterwork. The house has been fairly well preserved however the timber sash and case windows are no longer in situ. The house is set in its own grounds off Dalry Road.
