We've lived in our Honor Oak half-house for more than a decade. We're fond of the house and the neighbourhood. But one drawback to the house is a very thin dividing wall on one side of the house.

Considerate neighbours are essential. We've always been lucky in that respect and still are. But it seems likely that the young couple next door might be planning a family. Long sleepless nights for them could mean just the same for us. That's just one of a few reasons why we're considering moving on.

If we wanted to stay in the area, but still to upgrade to an extra room, one of the more affordable options seems to be the sort of halls-adjoining houses that can be seen in e.g. Grierson Road. But would we defintely be better off as regards sound insulation from neighbours? Has anyone got an informed opinion on this? Maybe someone who lives in one or knows someone who does?

Any advice or reassurance greatly received.

Ta.
