Between Piedmont Heights and Lindridge-Martin Manor, an entire tucked-away neighborhood is springing to life with a pretty unique look not far from where Piedmont Road meets Cheshire Bridge and dips under Interstate 85.

The builder, Hedgewood Homes, is marketing this community called Manchester as being where Morningside meets Midtown and Buckhead. Close enough.

Like an urban Serenbe minus the commercial facet, this 104-home neighborhood is “a refreshingly modern take on the early European urban village” and features both single-family homes and townhomes designed with a “distinctive and enduring style,” as the spiel goes.

Most floorplans show three bedrooms with three bathrooms, but there are some variations with one, two, and four bedrooms.

It’s not clear what the exact square footage is for these properties, but some listings on various real estate hubs show spaces between 1,700 and 2,400 square feet.

Community amenities include a swimming pool, neighborhood plazas and parks, and landscaped gardens.

As it stands, Phase 1 has sold out, with just two homes remaining in Phase 2, per the builder’s website. Among them is the two-bedroom, two-bathroom townhome pictured here, asking $430,000.

Phase 3 homes are said to be coming soon. Specific listings on the builder website for some of those offerings run between $615,000 and $720,000.

Given the sales success thus far, it seems many buyers do indeed want to live in “Manchester’s highly sought-after central location.”

Added bonus: the brand-new freeway bridge down the street.
