  • A maisonette has its own entrance to the street. A flat is entered by way of a shared hall or stairway.

  • Hello there, A maisonette is usually spread over two floors - typically the top ones - though this isn't a rule in the UK. Here they're flats that have their own separate, private entrance. Since they're usually top floor properties, you'll often find them above retail establishments. Many thanks, Dan
