This home is in a cul-de-sac with open space behind the backyard. Having a home on a cul-de-sac can bring peace and quiet. Since there is not a heavy traffic flow like a traditional street, you can expect less cars to constantly drive by. This also brings an additional sense of privacy. Since there is no cut-through to another street, you won't have to worry about anyone being close to your home. This ties into the third benefit of safety. If you have small children, you can take comfort in them playing with neighbors in the cul-de-sac without worrying about heavy traffic. There is also a sense of community in homes around the cul-de-sac as block parties can be more common and the layout makes it easier to talk with neighbors. Lots on cul-de-sacs are typically larger than standard lots. This is great for families with children or pets as it means a larger yard to play in.
