Local Homes For Sale on Cul-de-Sacs

For reduced traffic and more privacy, get in the sac
The home in Bothell

The cul-de-sac—icon of suburbia—has fallen out of favor with urban planners seeking greater connections between neighborhoods and transit-friendly throughways. For car-eschewing, density-seeking millennials, they are a punch line. But houses tucked away on cul-de-sacs (and their accidental cousins, dead-end streets) are still a big draw—often selling at a premium—for buyers seeking less street traffic, and the accompanying quiet and privacy. You’ll find plenty of engineered, bulb-shaped turnarounds north of 85th Street in Seattle and all across the Eastside.
