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.

This was one of the first houses my family and I visited. Our guide was Emily and she took us around the house and explained every detail to us from the floors to the ceilings. She was very knowledgeable from room to room. Even though we didn't tour the outside, she would give information on the garden as well. Before... More

Tour was good but short. Only 25 minutes. Guide lacked any sort of enthusiasm and was hard to understand. No pictures allowed which was a bummer. Interesting facts though what we could understand. House was beautiful!

The house is impeccably preserved to say the least. Caretakers tour you throughout the property with In Depth stories and information. An impressive history lesson.

This is one of the very few southern examples of a family home shown just as it was when the family occupied the rooms. The furnishings were purchased by the Low family and used by them and there are no "staged" interiors. The pieces are wonderful and many are one-of-a-kind. I loved this house and it should not be missed!!

My wife and I decided to go to Savannah as our first family vacation with our 16 month old son. We decided that we would like to take this house tour. They open up at 10am and we were the first ones there just a couple of minutes before they open. When the employee opened up for the day our... More

Amir was our young guide...so enthusiastic and knowledgeable! Factoids such as why the shiny brass rods were put on stairs...to hold carpet down and to reflect the light in days before electricity.

We did the ghost tour (trolly ride) and this is the first stop. Very cool to get to tour the house - for those girl scouts out there, this is Juliette's father in law's house which her husband inherited, and this is where she died. Very spooky things happen here. :)

Great stories and it's the house where Julia the founder of the Girls Scouts lived with her husband and children until her death and where she founded the Girls Scouts.

I took the Ghosts and Gravestones tour in Savannah and this house was one of the stops made on the tour. There were some neat things to see inside, but there wasn't a whole lot. It's a very beautiful house overall though with some interesting history.
