Owner description: 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.

“Interesting home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2013

This home showed how a wealthy a cotton factor lived before the civil war. While the home is quite small compared to the homes owned today by wealthy Americans, the rooms and furnishing are lovely. The home was purchased directly from the heirs of the last Low family member to live in the house by the preservation group that owns it today in 1928. The only changes made to the home since Juliette Gordon Low lived in the home were made in order to open the home for tours. The staff was friendly and the docent informative. A great experience.

“Beautiful!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

This is a well preserved display of pre Civil War wealth. Our docent gave a wonderfully knowledgeable tour and history of Andrew Low, a truly rags to riches story in itself, along with detailed information of the contents of the house. It's well worth the small admission fee.

“Nice tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

Lovely restored house in historic downtown. Beautiful furnishings throughout. We toured a few homes while in town and this was one of our favorites. Artifacts and Antiques throughout are beautiful. We generally preferred this tour over the highly acclaimed Owen-Turner home tour. Although OT was a surprise- nice example of indoor plumbing well before it became prevalent.

“Best furniture display”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

The home, itself, is well-preserved, but the furniture is the highlight of this property. It is remarkably well-preserved(or restored) and much of it is original to the house. Most of it was purchased from the expensive furniture-makers of New York and Philadelphia at the time.
