He can go wherever he wants to go, as long as he talks to the towers at the airports when he is in the area. But he can't fly over X President Bushes house. President Bush lives about 10 miles down the road from him, and 11 miles down the road from me. He has a 2 mile(I think) radius no flight zone. And believe me, you don't want to go into the no flight zone, when he was president, and he was in town it was a 10 mile radius no fligth zone. So my dad couldn't fly. But 4-5 times when I was at their house there were some stupid little privat pilots that decided to push the limits, and 3-4 F-16s were on their ass in less than 3 minutes once they entered the zone. It is pretty cool see f-16s behind a little plan shooting warning flares at them, I've got some video of it somewhere right over my parents house.

I don't like him but I still think that its cool that you live close to him. Like him or not, he made history. You got to respect that lol. The only famous person that live near me is Emimem's mom and she really isn't that famous.

Could you drive pass his house or is his street shut down?

Yeah you can drive past it. His ranch is several thousand acres though, but you can only see the roof of his house from the road. When he was president and he was in town, you had to have a reason to go down the road or the secret service wouldn't let you. I have seen him several times, along with air force one. But since h has not president anymore you can drive down the road whenever you want, but just cant get through the security gate, thats right a security gate with armed officers at it, and drive up his driveway.
