I finally managed to book a new house(I always came on the cancelation list otherwise) and I like the house, however, there’s a public road right in front of the house that leads straight to the dart station and is the shortest route for many. And, to top that, there’s a footpath literally in front of the house (even before the car park) that will be used by all pedestrians to commute to the dart station as shown below:
This has made me really confused about whether to go with this property due to privacy and safety concerns. People using the footpath will have full visibility of the living room, etc. Had the footpath been after the car park then the cars would have provided some sort of “barrier” and I would be fine with it.
Other than privacy and security concerns, will this arrangement affect the selling price of the house if I later decide to sell? Or, do people generally don’t care (or care less) about a public road/footpath right in front of their house?
Wanted to get some perspectives from different people so posting it here.
