One side we have an elderly widow - dream neighbour! Super quiet and lovely.
The other side is a couple that seem to be in their late 20's with a baby and a dog. We have had some issues with them in the past (nuisance barking from the dog & they used to be noisy some nights when they got home from the pub), but they're no trouble now. We have come to an understanding and they addressed the issues we had.
Our street is generally really quiet which we love as we are quiet folks ourselves.

I live in a new estate and the two blocks beside me are currently being built on. However down the road there's a lovely single mummy of 5 kids. We actually used to work together years ago but never knew each other. As a single mummy myself it's quite nice having company. We've caught up a few times for drinks and her kids have come to play here a few times. They've also fed my dog while I was away and I give her kids lifts. He older daughter is also going to start babysitting my boys. We get along so well... We've even borrowed things from each other (spices and garlic) to save a trip to the shops. I'm very happy

One side we have laziest family you could imagine. They have been on holidays and left the dog home alone inside so no one would know. The yard is disgusting. They have trees that continually block the sewer lines to the point it all backs up at the bottom of my yard as I have the easement running through. The ivy is growing up over the fence and destroying the fence which is abestos super 6 but do they listen about that nooo they then they Decided to plant a tree right up against the fence and it it growing into the retaining wall and ruining that. Across the road is just as bad their place is a ticking time bomb they roar up and down the street at 5am every morning with their illegal exhaust on their car, have a dumped car in their front yard, the mum is so nice but he's an ****, he has ruined their house from the moment they bought it, it was meticulously maintained by the older couple that built it now you wouldn't even want to go inside its that trashed. Next to them is nice his wife passed last year but he moved the new GF in like a month a she passed, then we have the women next to the old dude who seems to have a different guy every week. Next to us on the other side are my best neighbours ever we've lived here for 12 years and next to them is another family. We live in a leafy suburb by the sea and our street used to be quiet and peaceful until the morons moved in

We live in a housing estate owned by the company DH works for so everyone knows of everyone. On one side we have middle eastern family who are very quiet they have 3 teenage boys and a baby girl but you wouldn't know it because we never hear a peep out of any of them. On the other side we have a family about the same age as us and they are also quiet (although not as quiet) and super friendly always saying hello and asking how we are when we go outside. Across the road is a young couple that are either at work or travelling so we never see them. With direct neighbours we really lucked out I suspect we are the noisy ones but there is a family up the street from us that are a bit loud and rude we just ignore them.

We live across the road from a creek but the neighbours over the other side...the guy drives his ride-on mower every single night around 10pm. He has a small property. He goes on it to get around.
The neighbours to the left.. The guy that used to live there chased his (now ex) wife a hammer. He now as an AVo out on him. He was very crazy and often harrassed neighbours in the area
The neighbours to the right are nice people, their son and daughter (teens) have autism.
The neigbourhood and people are all pretty good.

Also the neighbours to the left...the woman has a new man now and he sits outside smoking bongs all day. The yard is a disgrace,

We're pretty lucky with our neighbours. One side is a couple in their 60's who are nice and both work full-time. I do think it's strange that they regularly comment on watching their weight, eating well and cutting back on wine etc yet they smoke like chimneys!
The other side is a young couple with a 1 year old. The always seem to stay inside though. If I take my daughter for a walk in her pram or trike they think I'm doing laps because she won't sleep...ah nup, I actually enjoy being outdoors..and so does my bub

A few years ago we didn't really know our neighbours at all, one side had a contract with defence so new people came every 12 months or so and the other side was a rental but ended up being a few defence boys together too, they pretty much kept to themselves. Last three years though the rental sold and an older couple bought, completely redid the house with fresh paint carpet kitchen extended patio. They like to always know what's going on in the street. The other side once defence ran out a local family moved in with their combined 4 kids (plus access to one more). They're great, we chat over the fence and get along well.

I'm on a corner block and the other corner is a rental. Mix of different people ATM it's a young family quiet but there dog is so annoying! Constantly barks. Behind me is single mum who I've rang families on few times as she's had her child outside at like 3am etc during winter. 😱 and he walks to my gates.
we are a mix of public housing and private. The lady across the road is nice and has left a DV relationship I've become 'friendly' with her. And only just really met her once I've moved back. Then across from her is a old lady. She was my grandmas friend. She's horrible. She told me off for putting rubbish in her bin 😂 and put it on my door front I was like seriously! Even though hubby fixed her plumbing etc for free.
I try keep to myself in my neighbourhood as its still very low socioeconomic and lots of drugs etc hopefully one day I can buy another house soon
