What is the name of the style of home that has a center courtyard surrounded on three sides by the house? I have been looking for plans and don't know the name of this style house. I'd like to find some plans for this. Help!
There are several styles that incorporated the enclosed and semi-enclosed courtyard, including Mission, Spanish Colonial, California Ranch, Greek Revival, and sometimes Tudor, Meisian, and Bungalow. Probably the most common is California Ranch. Since the 60's, many homes have been built without adherence to a style. To really know, contact an architect or check some books out from the library. Suggest American Homes by Lester Walker.
