The mansions of Manorborn are large, with intricately decorated exteriors. statues, fountains and gargoyles are a common site. They are usually square, with 2-3 stories and no external columns.

Few have been transformed into public gardens.

Wide, cobbled boulevards separate the mansions, with wide stretches of grass and dirt where large trees are grown to provide shade and a green view for the residents.
