Overview
More
Andrew Low commissioned New York architect John Norris to design and construct his house in 1848. Norris came to Savannah to design the Custom House on Bay Street and remained in Savannah to build many desirable residences with the latest in technology and luxury. The Italianate exterior features intricate cast iron railings and side balconies contrasting with the smooth stuccoed brick walls. The well proportioned rooms are decorated with elaborate plaster cornices and carved woodwork. The delicate balance of exterior restraint and opulent interior resulted in an elegant villa for the family.

a pretty house of a wealthy merchant, liberal display of wealth, interesting but not fascinating. i'd recommend owens-thomas house if you are only doing one house. if you love to look at houses, this is a nice one too.

Very well preserved house with a docent who showed good enthusiasm, hit the high points, and didn't talk too much!

This was the only house tour we did in Savannah. It was inexpensive ($9 pp AARP rate) and fairly brief (about 30 minutes), so I guess you get what you pay for. I think that the quality of the tour depends on the docent. We...More

This is a lovely home, but the tour is really quick! The tour is 30 minutes, and the tour guide did not promote and discouraged questions as we were rushed along during the tour. While the house is beautifully restored most of furnishings are not...More

The tour is guide with a max of 14 people at a time. The lady that did our tour was a historian and someone that truly loved this house. The house is furnished with either family items or period correct.

This property was very cool to see, lots of history here. We saw slaves quarters and I can't imagine the hardships that they went through being in such a dark and damp place within the working quarters, the sleeping quarters were separate. The main house...More

I enjoyed visiting this house because Juliet Gordon Low lived here as Andrew Low's wife. The house is beautiful inside and the tour was very interesting.

By good fortune and stewardship the Andrew Low house has survived the years very close to it's original appearance and has been refurnished with some original pieces and several fine replacements. Of the historic homes open to the public in Savannah this is must see.

The entrance to the home alone had about 15 steps (we entered with our tour through the back). To tour the second floor is another 15-18 steps. I would not recommend taking the tour if you can't do more than 5 steps.
