  • It could mean a conversion from an original coach house or stable. Or it could just be a developers description of a house with most of the accommodation above a garage. [see also 'what is a mews']

  • Hi Romesh, A coach house is any property converted from an old outbuilding originally built for a horse-drawn carriage. In rural areas coach houses are usually single story, but those on larger estates and in traditionally rich locales are more elaborate. Today, they're some of the most prestigious property styles, with coach house conversions proving endearingly popular. Many thanks, Nicoletta
