This house has a shared driveway which means that you and the house next door both use the driveway to access your garages in the rear. Neither homeowner can legally park in the driveway because you cannot block the neighbors ability to pull a car into their garage.
Sometimes neighbors and homeowners with these types of driveways work out an informal agreement where they both allow each other to park in the driveway, but that does not give you the legal right to park there. If you get into an arguement with your neighbor that agreement will usually be terminated! Also, when you go to buy or sell the house you cannot get or give a guarantee that you can park in the driveway unless the neighbor you share the driveway with puts something in writing that you can park there. Even at that you should have a lawyer help you.
If you are looking to purchase a property or need further assistance, please contact me. Good luck!
