This に is just a location marker. It's the same に as in 部屋に or 日本に. When used as a noun, 身近 refers to places near you, or familiar places you go to frequently (home, school, office, station, ...).

身近に親しい異性がいたらよかったのにね。

It would have been nice for you/me to have someone of the opposite sex close by.
