In older areas a lot of houses have power lines passing the front of the house for local supply. However, this sounds more like a newer area with underground power, but having a main feeder line passing overhead. Depending on the the voltage and power it carries it can have a significant effect on property value. Some people still perceive there to potentially be health problems with the ELF fields, so can subdue demand for these properties.
If you're building next to them, consider that some higher voltage ones will emit a buzzing sound, so you'd want to factor in potential noise in the house design.
