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.

Went on a ghost tour, was a nice place to visit

Was a stop on our nighttime ghost tour, nice historical place to visit. Was a little spooked on the tour but I'm sure it's lovely during the day.

We came to this house on a horrible wet day shortly after Hurricane Matthew had passed through the city, and were really glad we did. Even better was the fact that the receptionist suggested a combo ticket with the Davenport House and the Maritime museum, as the savings on the combined entrance fees was well worth it, and we needed...

Andrew Low was Scottish, and came out to Savannah where he made his fortune as a cotton merchant. He commissioned a New Yorrk architect to design this beautifully proportioned ante-bellum family home in 1848 - and it was competed the following year. There is virtually nothing in the hose which is an original Andrew Low possession; however, the National Society... More

Entered this house on a Ghost tour so that was the focus. It was at 7PM and dark. All areas had good mood lighting. Docents where engaging and knowledgable. Entertaining and every thing very well maintained in time period.

We toured other historic homes, up the Andrew low house captured our imagination with its period furniture, some from the low family. Our tour guide was so engaging and clearly loved sharing this beautiful home and stories with us.

This home has been lovingly maintained and shepherded into present day. The tour offers a great snapshot of what life was like in nineteenth century Savannah. Thank you to Harriet for being a warm and wonderfully knowledgeable docent!

This is a tour well worth taking, the fittings and furnishings are very special and whilst not all are original , some have been retrieved and re-instated. Also the colourful and oven tragic stories of the former occupants provide further insights into the way the wealthy lived and died back then.
