Homes for Sale with a Guest House in Boca Raton FL

 

Homes for sale with a guest house in Boca Raton FL - either you love them or hate them.  I love them!  They are very Florida in feel with more open-air living space.    Homes with a guest house are commonly referred to as Courtyard homes or Courtyards in Boca Raton, FL.  

 

A courtyard is not a traditional house.   What is meant by a courtyard home is that all rooms open into the courtyard where you will usually find a pool, sometimes  spa and summer kitchen, as well. Everything revolves around the courtyard offering the homeowner privacy.  Courtyard homes are single family homes but often have separate guest houses.  These guest houses may have one bedroom and one bath, perhaps even a kitchenette.  Guest houses may be single or double-storied and have more than one room.   People find guest houses useful as offices, exercise rooms, guest rooms and more.  Homes for Sale with Guest House in Boca Raton FL

 

This type of home is unique in that the main house and guest house have separate entrances yet are under the same roof.   There may be beautiful iron gates or double door entry leading into the courtyard.  What curb appeal!  Detached guest houses are not as common in this area.  Homes with a guest house in Boca Raton make wonderful use of Florida's indoor/outdoor living spaces.  This is true Florida-style living at its best! 

  

Homes for sale with a guest house often have small backyards.  The reason for this is the house is pushed back to make room for a pool within the courtyard.   Homes for sale with a guest house can be as small as 1700 or as large as 10,000 or more square feet.   The larger the home, the larger the courtyard.

Elyse- the homes in Boca Raton with a guest house have a great appeal.  I just offered a consultation on one.  Great for all the visitors we receive.

I need a couple of these homes, Elyse.  It's not a popular floor plan in these parts, however, I see things changing. More and more folks are wanting a multi-generation living arrangement. This would work well.

Oh how I wish we had more of something like this here in Richmond VA. We are having so many requests for Mother-in-Law suites with a separate entrance and a courtyard would be perfect. Together yet space to yourself.

Elyse, to answer your question...YES...a courtyard house does sound interesting! What a way for a guest to enjoy staying with family or friends and yet have privacy.

We make it easy. You make it home.

A guest house seems like a great idea...privacy yet close by. Nice explanation in your post, Elyse.

Kathy,  The homes with a guest house in Boca are a great fit for some people.

Kevin,  We have outrageous courtyards here; however, this photo is courtesy of Barbara Martino-Silva.

Debb,  I can understand that.  It's more of bringing the outdoors in, but agree with you on the multi-generational living.  I have seen separate guest houses on properties, two bedrooms and a bath.  

Shannon,  Having the pool in the center of the house makes it more of a warm climate home, in my opinion.  However, as I told Debb, I have seen separate guest houses on properties with two bedrooms and one bath.  These were detached from the main house.

Nick,  Yes, exactly.  The family also has privacy from their neighbors.   It is different than having all backyards in a row.

Jill,  It works well in many situations.  Thanks.

Gabe,  Thank you.  Extended family is one reason why people like courtyards.  The guest house has many uses.
