Living in a dream home isn’t just about having everything you need on the inside, it’s about having the perfect features on the outside, too. House plans with a courtyard allow you to create a stunning outdoor space that combines privacy with functionality in all the best ways. Unlike other homes, which only offer a flat lawn before reaching the main entryway, these homes have an expansive courtyard / driveway area that brings you to the front door. This allows for an open, private entry space that greets guests and owners alike with a sense of luxury and comfort.

Layout of Home Plans with a Courtyard

These home designs  are available in a variety of styles and layouts, with one common design placing the rooms of the house in the back and sides of the property and the courtyard directly front and center. These are commonly referred to as U-shaped house plans. These layouts sometimes include full wooden doors separating the courtyard from the street, or more elaborate and elegant iron gates.

Other designs shift the courtyard to one side and position the house in an “L” shape. Courtyard entries can often be found in Mediterranean and Mission style designs.

Regardless of the specific layout, these homes frequently make use of shrubbery to enhance the privacy while also adding a more natural feel to the entire space. Some plans also place walls or buildings around the perimeter of the courtyard, which opens up a wide range of decorating possibilities, such as the use of columns.

If you’re interested in a front courtyard house plan, we have plenty to choose from. They are available in many different architectural styles and layouts, and if you have any questions, our customer support team will be happy to help!
