WHAT IS IT A LANEWAY OR CARRIAGE HOUSE?
Laneway and Carriage Houses are compact, detached, ground oriented dwellings located in backyards.
Laneway houses are located on properties that have access to a lane.
Carriage Houses are located on properties without lanes.
Laneway and Carriage Houses can be used for family or as rental units but cannot be sold separately or used for short-term rentals (like a bed and breakfast).
