If the cemetery is active and well kept, I would have no problem living near one. In fact, I'd be pleased to live near one. Less noise and a nice garden to look at. Note, I don't use the word "garden" to bring about offense (that is not my intent), but cemeteries can be very beautiful, aesthetically speaking.

I don't live near one but while I was window shopping on Zillow once I saw a condo that overlooked and old cemetery and church building, it might have been Philly or somewhere close. The photos were taken in the winter with snow on the ground and it just looks so old-world and peaceful I wanted to fly across the country just to see it!

I just don't see it as a big deal in any way. Personally, I like cemeteries and used to tramp them often photographing older monuments and statuary. There are many that are just beautiful. And they're quiet.

OP is hyper-focused on this right now, but my bet would be that if he did live near one, it would fairly quickly fade from being a focus. I live down the street from a large cemetery that I pass daily, and frankly, it's nice to have that large green and treed space that will not be overtaken by all the nearby construction.
