English to Spanish translations [PRO] Real Estate / Construction, housing
English term or phrase:Carriage home
This is one of many types of housing made available for rent or purchase. The target audience is Spanish-speaking, but living in the US.
Muchas gracias, pero el tipo de vivienda al que me refiero es un apartamento encima del garaje de una casa más grande, como por ejemplo donde podría vivir una abuela o un inquilino de recursos limitados. "Carriage" no se refiere a que sea una vivienda móvil, sino que al garaje debajo de esta vivienda en particular.

Explanation: El carriage home es también un modelo de casa, no creo que haya exactamente término en español, yo explicaría lo que es: Apartamento, accesoria, sobre el garaje de la casa o como dice dorisarria, también se les conoce como "in-law apartment" apartamento para los suegros:
A mother-in-law apartment is a small apartment accessory to a primary residence. Alternative names include "granny flat", "granny suite""in-law suite", and "accessory apartment", the first being used primarily in Britain, where it is the most familiar of these terms, but also in parts of the United States. Such apartments are frequently used to accommodate an elderly relative who is not capable of living on their own, but is not ready for a nursing home environment or other similar facility.
The apartment may or may not have a communicating door to the main house, but virtually always has a separate entrance and is usually not part of the original design. Many are located above the garage of the main house or as a separate building in the rear yard
