Coach Houses are a unique type pf property seen every so often in Vancouver. A Coach House is a detached home that shares a stratified lot with another house/duplex/townhouse complex. It’s similar to a laneway house, but not necessarily on a lane, and it can be sold separately of the main house (laneway houses cannot be sold separately). At the end of the day, a Coach House is a great way to give the owner the feel of a detached house, without the high price tag. Coach Houses can be anywhere from a few hundred sqft to over 1000sqft, and are often attached/above a garage.
Coach Houses are stratified, which means all the owners sharing the lot share the common expenses (i.e. maintenance of outdoor space, maintenance of the buildings, etc) and ownership/use of the common outdoor space is detailed on the strata plan. These properties are typically fairly flexible with rentals and pets, and are great for growing families who want to live in an area with a quiet neighbourhood feel. The complexes are self managed and require maintenance similar to that of a house.
