My partner & I are looking at buying a house near a graveyard. The house is way back on a pleasant oleander lined street with plenty of neighbors. From the house we like you literally walk across a small side yard, across a small lane & thru the oleander & you are standing in the graveyard, He states it would bother most people. I grew up with a graveyard that practically spilled into my grandmother's yard so its not an issue with me. Opinions please Smiley

I voted "no, it doesn't matter". Across from our first apartment was a stonemasonry that built gravestones. They exhibited their works in their front yard, just across the street from us. And next to the stonemasonry was the graveyard of the village. So every time we looked out of the kitchen window we looked on the gravestones.
We didn't mind at all.

Buying a house near a graveyard wouldn't bother me.
Good luck with buying a house! A pretty exciting thing to do! Smiley

It wouldn't bother me, either, especially if it was an older, historic graveyard.

At least you shouldn't have to worry about noisy neighbors.  Wink

Hi Steve.  I once lived across from a churchyard and though it was lovely.  Peaceful, lots of light because there weren't big buildings.  But I always liked churchyards since I was a kid, so I wouldn't find it creepy or anything. 

The only issue I can think of:  is it a place that attracts rowdy young people and their beer? 

Good luck!

Question is:  would it bother HIM?

I voted no, it doesn't matter.  I've always loved graveyards because they paint an historical picture of the area.

I lived next door to one.  I was pleased because I knew the place would always be quiet and green with no traffic or disturbances.

And for my superstitious fears if I even took them seriously, there was an open storm drain that ran between my apartment and the cemetery and as we all know, ghosts can't cross running water.  Grin

It does not seem to bother him to the extent that he wants to put a wet blanket on the idea,
and as previously stated, I have no problem with it.

All that ends well, the house ends up sitting directly on the property line. I told the realtor the deal is off till they fix the problem. We really liked it thought but not enuff ta get inta legal problems.
