Living in a cul-de-sac can mean a quiet, leafy area with little traffic where children can play safely.

A 20-acre Deer Park - onetime playground of the Fitzwilliams of Mount Merrion - is just a short walk away. This house is 1,098 sq ft with four bedrooms plus attic space. Downstairs, there is living room and a modern kitchen/dining room. The bay windows and diamond-leaded glass hark back to Tudor times.
