Long Island Home Buyer Asks What Is A Cul De Sac?

Real Estate Agent with The Top Team @ Charles Rutenberg Realty 255 Executive Dr, Plainview NY 11803

The American meaning of a Cul-De-Sac is one way in and one way out. A Cul-de-Sac is created to limit through-traffic in residential areas. It is a street that is not connected to other roads and sometimes called a Court. A Cul-De-Sac and Dead End Street both have only 1 inlet/outlet, but a Cul-De-Sac is in a circular formation with a turnaround.


Real estate values of houses built in a Cul-De-Sac can generally be higher than those built on regular streets. Many homeowners believe that living on a Cul-De-Sac is a natural way to slow down drivers since there is little through-traffic, and because of this, home buyers may be willing to pay a premium for this convenience.


Last weekend we were showing houses to a family on The North Shore of Long Island. As we approached a house in the Cul-De-Sac, the family became excited and were all in agreement that this was the place for them - Even though it was above their price limit.


When you are ready to purchase a Long Island home on a Cul-De-Sac, or a street that is not in a busy traffic pattern, work with Lawrence "Larry" and Sheila Agranoff.

Cul-de-sac locations are usually more desirable since there seems to be greater privacy provided.

When my sons were young, I rented an apartment in a home on a cul-de-sac. It was great for them. They learned to ride their bikes in a safe spot, they could run across and play with the neighbor's kids and I could still see what was going on. Loved it!

Good morning, Sheila and Larry... cul-de-sacs are highly "prized" in my area... especially in my County, where they stopped allowing developments with them some years back... everything has to be on a grid pattern now for connectivity and easy access for first responders. 

Interestingly, I had Swiss-French clients who always laughed at this term... as they don't use it there. Sort of like when French clients once asked me what French doors were... they just call them doors. :)

Good morning Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 yes, living in a cul de sac could be quite preferrable to limit speeders and reckless driving.

I enjoy living on a cul-de-sac, we have nice mini community and we watch each other's houses when they are away.

Another advantage of living on a cul-de-sac is that the lots are usually pie shaped with more land than the lots on the street leading up to the cul-de-sac.
