You could do a nice lattice fence that would give you the needed privacy but not make the place look like a fortress. You could frame frosted lexan or something for that matter.

I do think you would come to like a gate across the front better than one cutting off the open feel of the courtyard?

(And the drain pipe coming out of the garage is another DIY project that I think I've mostly dealt with. It's no longer there).

I might say you got a good looking house.. :-)
