Are these three sentences OK?

  1. There is a cafe which is perfectly located/situated within walking distance from where I live.
  2. There is a cafe which is perfectly located/situated within walking distance from my house/apartment/neighborhood.
  3. There is a cafe which is perfectly located/situated within easy reach of my neighborhood/my house/apartment/where I live.

Yes. In American English, you'll often to hear "that" rather than "which."

I think 'which is' can simply be omitted.
