The term is spelled "curtilage" or sometimes "curtilige" and is the area immediately surrounding one's home, including any buildings, such as a barn or detached garage.

It is important in 4th Amendment law, because courts have held that in addition to your home, the curtilage is protected against unreasonable search and seizure.
