    Maisonettes - more desireable / worth more than a flat??? 8th Jul 11 at 7:32 PM
    In general are maisonettes more desireable or worth more than a flat? I'm trying to see what a rough value for a property might be. I've looked on rightmove for the area the property is in but there are no maisonettes for sale, only flats. Have also looked on nethouseprices and the only recent sale was this property back in 2003 (£148,000 back then).

    It's basically a block of 4 properties, one shared main front door with 2 x downstairs one bedroom flats and the stairs leading to 2 x two bed maisonettes. It's purpose built and looks like an attractive large house from the outside. The property has an en suite, a garage & driveway and also a garden (albeit as it is first floor you obviously can't get to the garden without going out the front door and round).

    Does anyone know what sort of value being a maisonette over a flat would add (if any) and also whether the garage and the garden are likely to add much value?

    Thanks for any input
