    Default close by or close to?

    Which is proper? " My house is close to here" or " My house is close by here"?

    Default Re: close by or close to?

    Both are acceptable.

    It would be more usual to say "My house is close by" [omitting "here" as the phrase "close by" implies not far from here]
