With a private treetop setting, the turn-of-the-century Colonial on Gardiner Street features lovingly preserved architectural detail and charm of the early 1900s.

Perched atop a knoll overlooking Noroton Heights, the property sits at the end of a quiet enclave of a half-dozen homes.

A porch with stone pillars hugs the front of the home, offering great architectural detail and plenty of space for outdoor entertaining on its wrap-around deck.

The covered entry's French doors are just one charming period detail of the home.

A lovely formal living room with original hardwood floors, window sills wide enough for taking a seat and an elegant handcarved mantle showcase an era when things were built with great craftsmanship.
