There is a novel called "My Flat and Her Apartment" which IIRC explores these interesting transatlantic differences.

Wondering if the person that started this thread ever came back to discover what we're really discussing here.

OP is probably quietly digesting all our information & planning on how to act on it.

In the fifties we lived in a "flat" in Montreal P.Q. A flat was usually a living quarter above a store, called so because it was flat, no stairs or other elevations inside the "flat". .
Good to know, although not something I was aware of because I was still nearly 40 years away from conception at that time

I know in Japan, they are called 'mansions'.
Which in my mind, is a large, elegant limestone house at the end of a tree lined avenue, not a 25m2 concrete box with a washing machine and air-conditioner on the balcony.

I think you'll find this sort of facetious terminology as far back as we have writing...
