I was taking with a co-worker after work in day and we were looking out towards a bunch of new homes and we thought they were too close together. Like less than the length of an SUV, but still may be in the standard size range for a 5 bed, 2 bath, 2-car garage home. In an apartment complex, I can't say if our neighbors are right there or somewhere else. I'll say zero feet. We used to rent a single-floor 4 bed house and the space was about the width of the house. My co-worker said he wants a place where the nearest neighbor is out on the borders of his mall parking lot sized estate.  Smile

How 'bout ya'll, would you say you have much freedom/privacy or are your living quarters cramped?

When you can hear them talking throug your wall they are to close. I live in a flat. So they are very close.

At school I live in a duplex, though its more of a big house with a wall down the middle.

It's about 10' from our garage to his garage, probably 20-30' feet between a livable portion of the house to a livable portion of our closest neighbor's house.

About 12 feet here where we are moving from; about 1,200 feet in our next home. Needless to say, I'm going to enjoy the new digs much better. I know some stuff about our current neighbors that I really don't need to know. Regards...Jack

Nearest in front of my house; about 25 miles,
The left; 8ft;
The right; 30ft;
Behind the house; 300ft.

What more could you want than to look out over the slopes of Dartmoor till the sky meets the horizon. (When its not raining)

Ugh... my neighbor's bed is opposite my bedroom wall, so max 15 centimetres. Like QIguy24, I can also hear my neighbors talk and walk. And fight. And watch TV. And have sex.

I wish I had a house.

in the 'hood up near denver (ok so its more of a suburb), my neighborhood was built a good long time before any of the mass-developers moved in. Our house is about 50 feet apart from the other houses.

The dorm room on the other hand...

Probably 4 feet to the north, 8 feet to the south. The houses in our neighbourhood are extremely close together. Its really weird because I was thinking about this yesterday, and about how close our houses were in comparison to the US (considering they're not exactly Council Houses). Weird. When you look at it closely, my road looks weird, the houses are so close together and the front gardens quite grand but small.. Its funny.

Fron all of my neighbors.. the wall. There are a bunch of apartments here, even on top of mines. I can also hear them fight, fart, bathing, etc, etc...

I live in an apartment, and I have neighbors on both sides of me and there is almost no sound insulation between apartments, so I'd say I don't have too much privacy relative to say, a house...

Well for me, I live at home in a house that is pushing 100 yrs old. On our left side of the house we have a church and they are there on Sundays only, so I would say not to close. On the right side of the home, we have the second lot that is ours but beside that we have our new neighbors, and its not that close to us either.

About a 1,000 feet down the gravel driveway there is a neighbor, otherwise about a half mile is the closest! (I live in rural Iowa on a farm)

Both neighbours at about 5 meters / 15 feet from my house´s left and right side, a street in the front and a forest in the back. My neighbours only come in weekends and holidays. I´m quite happy.

Anyone here living in Australia and visiting the neighbours by plane?  Wink/being sarcastic

If you're asking about my next door neighbours, I'd say a few centimetres - or however thick the wall is between the flats!

The City requires that all buildings leave a minimum gap of 5 metres from the outer wall to the edge of the property, so we have the bare minimum 10 metres on 3 sides (5m of my building + the 5 of the one next door). And in front is the road.

Considering property prices are amongst the most expensive in the world, it's quite surprising there really haven't been many violations of the code!

Where we are now, we're in a typical UK semi - attached one side and about 8 feet on the other side. Behind us is about 100 ft across some parkland.

When we move to our gorgeous detached bungalow at the end of the month - as you look from the road there will be about 15 feet on the left, about 100 feet on the right (for now - although there's another house going up there that will reduce that to about 20 feet  Sad), and behind us there is a railway embankment with houses about 1/4 mile behind that - so nice and quiet!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Have one neighbor only about 80 feet west of me, but he is kind of out of sight over the brow of the hill. The rest are at least 300 feet away, far enough to be part of the view.

Did my time in apartments, even Army barracks. Like a little space.

I find neighbors annoying and bothersome (unless there is a hottie)- I would say we are to close in my eyes, about 25-30 feet both sides, however, when I move to the forest (my new term for the area), there are only 3 houses (one of which is ours) on a 1/2 mile street- how nice.

If someone´s looking for some more privacy, I have a nice house on offer with 4000m2 of land including a vineyard!  Wink/being sarcastic
