Buying at the end of a dead-end street
Looking for opinions. We're eyeing a home at the end of a short dead-end street. I can see some of the positives of living on a dead-end, with small kids, but are there negatives?
This house is at the very end of the dead end. I wonder if snow removal might be an issue. There's a bright streetlight at the end of this road, right outside the house. I wonder if the end of the street's likely to be a lover's lane at night. On the other side of the road is an armory, which I understand is quiet. I don't love that the house's yard is bordered by the armory's chain-link, barbed-wire fence on one side.
This street is somewhat active during the schoolday, since it's not far from a high school and some kids do use it to park. This doesn't bother me so much as I live on such a street by this high school now.
Anyone who's lived on a dead-end who cares to weigh in?
