I live on a martini glass lot in a conservation subdivision. The stem is a shared driveway with my neighbors. All the houses face the stem in each cluster. We share driveway maintenance.

Affordable "normal" housing is rare in the area where I work. We saw a normal house, close to town, in our price range, and we jumped on it, despite the conservation subdivision weirdness. It was the "least weird" of the other options we saw.

And how is that working out for you? Snow? I know I'd get the neighbor that refuses all winter maintenance.
