PHJF, Britain's got your back bro. A street with a turning point at the end is a cul-de-sac. If you believe the Wiki "court" is a more recognised term in the US than "cove". However it also says UK English common terms are "dead end, close, no through road" the former and latter of which are more generalised: a cul-de-sac has a turning point while you'd probably say dead end if there is no turning point.

Apparently it's from Catalan (NE Spain) and means "bottom of the bag", also befitting this conversation
