So, I've just got rid of a huge Leylandii hedge (pictures of my garden renovation to follow once it's complete)...

I need to choose a replacement, the context is a border with a public road on a relatively quiet 1960s build suburban housing estate.

So, LJ can run my life, or at least tell me what I should think about.

Any other options should go in comments.

For reference, I've something of a preference for Beech, but worry it'll get too big, and am being overwhelmed by choice.
