Coach house

Otherwise known as rearyard infill, Coachhouses are an older version of laneway houses that have been around for many years. Although they can look similar from the outside, they are administered by a different set of bylaws.

 

Vancouver homeowners and developers build them behind the main houses with entrances at the rear lane. These Lanehomes are a great way to add value to your property without purchasing a new piece of land.

What is an Coach house?

A Coach house is a detached structure in the rear of a main house. These ancillary buildings have their own entrances and are complete houses on their own, similar to a duplex. They can be strata-titled and are saleable separate from the main property, making them more valuable than a simple laneway house. Because they are “ground-oriented” with their own entrances, their usage is flexible: they can be rented out to relatives or tenants or can be sold off as part of the strata complex.
