Property Lines – Question about Windows?
I have attached an image to clarify the question.
Consider two neighboring properties, A and B.
A building is erected on property A.
It occupies land right up to the
property line with property B.
Is there any regulation, in any US state,
expressly prohibiting the building from
having windows facing property B?

Nope. The can have the ENTIRE WALL be of glass on that side of the house.. AND it is also legal for them to have no curtains and walk around naked.

Depends upon what the local zoning, building and fire codes say. For comparison, it may be illegal to build "fireproof warehouses" having windows directly facing each other, after the conflagration in St Johns, NB.

The legality is not with the windows. It is with where the building was built. In all likelihood, it was illegally built - too close to the property line.

There are regulations in just about every jurisdiction that would prevent Bldg A from being built in that proximity to the property line. Almost every jurisdiction has a building code in place for property line setbacks, environmental safety, and fire code between buildings. You should look into that before building.

In the US there is no universal building code.
