This last concept is the exception on several fronts. It can be used on sloping or wooded sites, and it can accommodate ranch walk-outs and larger homes than the other high-density plans. Because of that, courtyard lots are great for in-fill sites where you want to build more expensive houses. You can get four large houses onto a site measuring just 140 x 118 feet.

One house faces the street; the others are on the private court, which could be gated. Some of the houses have private patios on two sides. New Urbanism has problems producing private outdoor spaces. But here we see use easements and blank walls used to create two very private outdoor spaces for every home - still at eight units per acre.
