That doesn't always work. My old neighbor across the street would accost me whenever he'd see me out in the yard. The only thing that saved me was a rear drive garage so I'd be safe for the winter when he'd never see me. It really pissed me off that he'd waltz right in my yard through the closed front gate and strike up a conversation when I was obviously busy.

My dream would be to pick up a larger inner city lot in a couple years with an defunct house, tear it down and put up a duplex, with an entrance between the two units. Then I'd move my mom into the other side. That way, as she ages, I can still be around to take care of some maintenance and keep an eye on her, but still have a place to call my own.

I've got one on my infill - it's perfectly fine as long as both parties are using it for normal garage purposes. Gives you an extra bit of space for you to either have an oversized garage or a bit of outside storage. There are code requirements for the dividing wall for fire rating. I'd recommend getting a party wall agreement to spell out requirements if you need to replace the roof or anything. Other than that, it's pretty much a normal garage. I finished and heated my garaged but my neighbor didn't - it's yours to do with as you please.

One thing for the attached infill to consider if you're looking at A/C - make sure there is room for the A/C unit either in the front yard or front yard (or a specific spot on the one clear side you have). There are code regulations on obstructing your one clear side of the house and most of the time it means you can't put it on the side of the house.
