Designed as a duplex, the Manchester has only about 1600 square feet per side, but appears far larger. It is a stately building in its formal symmetry, derived from the French eclectic style popular during the 1920s. The single entry vestibule opens to each unit so the building appears to be a single home. Large columns define the verandas on both sides and ground the building. The effect lightens the ground floor and gives it a somewhat lighter appearance. Large family and private spaces provide ample room for an active family.
"The Manchester is a msterpiece in architecture, whether constructed as a single home or as a duplex. Its stately individuality causes it to stand alone in any community as a mansion of rare grace and permanent beauty; and yet so carefully have its designers considered economy in construction, that it is well within the means of those comtempating the erection of a two-family design."
