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.

Beautiful house which was great to go through. Merchant house on a beautiful Savannah square. Right in the historic district and family related to Juliette Gordon Low founder of the Girl Scouts.

This is a good place to visit to see some historical decor and antique pieces. We went twice - once during the day and once at night on the ghost tour. We got different information on each tour!

well maintained, and beautifully decorated inside with most of the stuffs of the olden time are kept intact. Dining room was very nice and also the bedrooms. You have to listen to the hunted stories narrated by the tour guide to enjoy the house.

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 didn't get much out of it. We were able to see the main rooms on... 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 original to the house, but it is furnished with beautiful pieces from that era and... 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 was very grand and had a very interesting lay out. Many of the old features... More

The Andrew Low house was one of the stops on a tour we took. Enjoyed hearing thr history of the home. My favorite room held the grand old bath tub. Think of being the women of the house and relaxing in that tub. The home is very well kept.
