Generally the same except it's usually built on top of something else. Still two storey but maisonette has to have its own entrance. Otherwise it will be classed as a flat if a shared entrance.

a coach House is like a flat above a garage, is that right?

Yep, normally a flat above two or three garages, one of which is usually yours too. Some people convert the garage to a bedroom to make them 2 beds.

Browsing through the NSFW thread doesn't give you a maisonette?

Do not buy anything for your new home until you have the keys. Not even when you have exchanged contracts. Trust me, I am talking from experience.

Good luck!

I would second Sippo's good advice, Mystical.  Congratulations and good luck going forward.  Keep posting though with any queries arising.

Sippo last night I did bookmark a load of boring stuff on Amazon like a Hetty hoover and some kitchen knives, plus some more exciting stuff like a projector (there's a massive white wall in the kitchen/living room). But I won't buy anything until I've got a key!

Will probably need to turn this into an amateur DIY thread as I begin to rip up the house.
