Living on a cul-de-sac is a wonderful way to become part of a close knit community. Homeowners living on the end of a quiet street typically enjoy the way the homes and lots are set up; generally, each lot has a triangular shape (similar to pie pieces). While this means that the front yards are smaller than others in the community, there’s one big benefit: It’s easy to create curb appeal with less time, energy, and cost than it would be with a massive front yard.
Those that worry they will be giving up space and privacy in a cul-de-sac can rest assured that the backyard provides plenty of both. The yards tend to widen behind the home which allows room for entertaining and children’s play areas. In addition, the placement of each house creates more privacy than homes lined up along a straight street.
Best of all, these neighborhoods are quiet and friendly. The close proximity of the homes gives everyone the added security and comfort of knowing others are close by. A cul-de-sac doesn’t have speeding traffic passing by, which lets parents feel better about kids playing in the front yard, on the sidewalk, or even in the street.
