Default Block Wall View

Many of the new Courtyard Villas now have what I refer to as a Block Wall View. Seems that the lots are getting so small that your Lanai now faces an ugly wall instead of a small green area. Just wondering if this would deter you from buying one of these? block-wall-view-jpg

So many people buy a CYV because they have dogs. I don't know any dog owners who buy such a limited "yard".

I don’t think anyone would want to live in that home, UNLESS that is all your budget will allow. When house shopping it’s never about what you want it’s about what you can afford. Some say its location, location, location. While others say it’s compromise, compromise, compromise.

I like having a green lawn and some room. *To me*, this would feel a bit claustrophobic. So yes, it would deter me.

That's a tight one and it's probably priced accordingly. They are not all like that.

We live in a courtyard villa and planted bougainvilleas along it. They are beautiful. We get many compliments on our yard.

Walls usually make good neighbors? I like the separation instead of kissing screen in porches 10 yards apart.

We just moved from a villa like that. Too claustrophobic for us.

Our villa yard is small but we have landscaped with plantings accordingly and its very pretty. Husband loves the low maintenance and we have a green area for the doggie. Feels just fine to us but to each their own.

Just enough room for a dog run.

Yes. In general, lots That I have seen south of 44 seem to be much smaller. Will not be moving there.

Pictures are deceiving. Courtyard villas are designed to be low maintenance. If you do not like this one, look for one you do like or get a house with a yard!
