Would this bother you ?

My husband & I recently moved from Houston back to my hometown in Connecticut. We've been househunting and found this great old Victorian house that's beautiful and affordable. It's affordable because it is right next to a cemetery. Now, this really does'nt bother me-I figure at least the neighbors will be quiet, but my hubby is totally opposed to it. So, I'm curious-how many of you would be bothered by it & who would not ?

I don't think it would bother me because I don't believe in ghosts and whatnot, but i can understand why it would bother a lot of people.

I would be pretty bothered. But I'm scared of any paranormal activities.

Not at all. The house I grew up in was down the street from one.
I like cemetaries...they're peaceful, usually pretty, and always interesting. But that's just me...anyway, I would go for it. Sounds like a lovely home!

My brother lives in a house that is on the next street over from a cemetary. My grandparents and some other relatives are buried there, he thinks its cool though, like he is neighbors with Grandma again I don't think it would bother me either...
Good luck!

I think it would be awesome! I wouldn't be bothered at all--especially since I hate living neighbors.

My aunt and uncle live behind one and they get some cool wildlife too.

I'd be all for it.

I'd think it would be pretty cool...

...except for when I'd have my first horror movie marathon in the new house and suddenly become super paranoid.

I guess it would bother me.... not the thought of ghosts as much as the depressing atmosphere.

It might take some getting used to. It would be quiet, and I imagine that it's an old cemetery since the house is old, and old cemeteries can be lovely and peaceful. But if your husband doesn't like it, he would be uncomfortable in the house the whole time he lived there.

During the day, I would probably be okay with it but after dark, especially if I was home alone, I would be a little freaked out.

Cemetaries are very peaceful and I can sit for quite a long time while I 'visit' special relatives but I am always just a little tiny bit spooked.

the new house I live in is built over a cemetary. Supposedly this is just "extra" land that the owners of the cemetary sold and there was never anyone buried here but you never know. It doesn't bother me at all.

I wouldn't have a problem with it; consider the fact that this country was first occupied by who knows what to the Indians to us; I'm sure we're walking, driving or running over the dead all the time! I would go for it! I would !!
