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.

The Andrew Low House was another attraction recommended by our hotel concierge as worth visiting. The home itself is another example of a beautiful southern anti-bellum home when people were thriving from the cotton business. The home has beautiful architecture with period furnishings and elaborate room décor such as the carved woodwork and ceiling trim. We were told by our... More

Beautiful home, and the carriage house where Juliette Gordon Low started the Girl Scouts is a must. There are no public restrooms at this house, but they will give you a free bottle of water.

This is one of the more interesting of the many grand old historic Savannah houses open to the public, with guide-led interior tours. The original owner was a very wealthy businessman who spent lavishly on his fine home. The tour guide's explanations give a good insight into the life, times and styles of such people.

This was a nice historic place to visit. You could tell the tour guide really cares about the home. The house has some nice artifacts but there is a lot of stairs.

If you have time to see only one antebellum home while in Savannah, chose this one for its vast collection of period furnishings. We especially enjoyed seeing the unusual upstairs bathing room. Andrew Low was the father-in-law of Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the American Girl Scouts (originally called Girl Guides). She inherited the house when her husband died in... More

We took the last tour of the day. Our docent, Eve, was delightful and knowledgeable. If you enjoy history and old homes you will not be disappointed. The woman at the museum shop counter was charming and kind (I wish I could recall her name) and shared great overall Savannah information with us. The Andrew Low house was stunning and... More

The Andrew Low House, an Italianate style designed by architect John Norris, circa 1847, was completely restored in 1952 by the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America, who also own the house. Andrew Low was originally from Scotland and came, as a young man, to Savannah. A shrewd businessman involved in the cotton trade, Low became the wealthiest... More

No original fixtures, don't get to see the kitchen in basement only main floor and upstairs bedrooms. Whole tour lasts about 25 minutes but part of the 3 houses for $21.00 package that my wife and I took advantage of and that price it was worth it.

Toured parlors, dining room, study, upstairs 4 bedrooms & bathroom. Would have been cool to see the basement kitchen & servant's quarters but that was not part of the tour. Docents were very knowledgeable & friendly.
