Together, the double stairways leading to the front entrance of this Savannah home give it an elegant presence. They also help provide protection from flooding, by raising the first and second stories off the street level. The architectural style of this type of southern home, where the main stories are a full story above ground level, is called “Low Country”. Homes situated in the “low country” were more likely to flood than those on higher ground.
