I have friends who have just done this.
For me it would be my absolute worst nightmare. I wouldn’t even live next door to my own mum. For them, culturally it’s very much the done thing and they love the idea of mum/MIL popping over with food or to do their washing.
Guess it depends which side you sit on

No. When we were first married we lived 2 streets away from the PiLs.
Never a moments peace. Expected to be able to walk in whenever they liked, sulked if we went out or away without asking them to go too, constantly nosy.
And I liked them both, but it was too much.

My parents and maternal grandparents live on the same street.
It helped with childcare growing up, and has fostered a really close relationship between us.
I hope to move close to my parents once I start a family.
But then we all get on really well and have boundaries.
