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.

Conveniently located across the street from the Hamilton-Turner Inn where we stayed during our visit to Savannah, the Andrew Low House was a logical place to visit. A 30-minute tour of the two main levels of the house given by an informative docent. Beautifully maintained and/or restored to its original magnificence.

Thoroughly enjoyed tour of this fine home. Our guide gave interesting points about some of the paintings, the efforts of the ladies of Savannah to obtain actual furnishings. Our guide also recommended other tour sites..

This was one of the first homes we saw in Savannah. It is an impressive home and especially much of the history that surounds it. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and brought to our attention the small items we may have missed if we just walked around. Worth your time.

This was the first tour of a historic home in Savannah that I went on and it was really nice to see how people lived back then. Of course these particular people lived extremely well because of their wealth but still nice to see.

I was not impressed with this tour. Rooms were roped off, you could not go in to really see anything.

This was one of 4 houses that we visited & for me it was the best. We went mid morning so there were not there many people there & thus it was only 4 of us on the tour. That way, you could see everything & could ask questions.

The Lowe house is an elegant mansion, situated on a tree-lined square in the historic district. Our tour guide was informative and friendly, offering a mixture of the family's history and that of Savannah's as well. Overall, it was a great introduction to the city and the manner in which it evolved from the colony's founding in 1733.

Loved exploring through this old home. It's amazing to see what was built and restored from the 1870's.

Wonderful tour guide, very knowledgeable. Another Greenblood must see. The place where Girl Scouts was started and the place where Juliette took her last breath when she passed away from breast cancer.
