When you picture a home with a courtyard, you likely imagine a sprawling estate surrounded by acres of lush greenery with its private, spacious courtyard nestled right in the center or at the entrance. That dream of having a home with a courtyard may feel unattainable, but the truth is that courtyards come in all shapes, sizes, and price points. 

The biggest benefit of a courtyard? Having an outdoor “room” that offers privacy, relaxation, and the feeling of pure luxury.

You can use a courtyard however you see fit: as a place to kick your feet up with friends an family, a second dining room, an extension of your garden, or for whatever your unique needs may be.

Below, we have found six homes for sale (and one for rent!) at all price points that boast their very own courtyards.
