Vancouver real estate: backyard or laneway house in Kitsilano sold for $1,850,000
Call it a coach house, carriage home, or laneway house.

Some also refer to this type of residence as a granny suite or garden home.

They’re all the same.

Typically located at the rear of a principal home, a coach or laneway house constitutes a detached and separate dwelling.

They can be pricey.

A backyard house on the west side of Vancouver sold for more than the price of a typical single family home on the east side of the city.

The laneway home at 1959 West 15th Avenue fetched $1,850,000.

Wasn't the plan for laneway houses to increase density while introducing lower cost residences? Also, is it really a laneway house if it's 1500 square feet? That's pretty damn big.
