What would it take for you to consider a house near the freeway? We have been looking for awhile now, and found a neighborhood that we really like. We actually looked at a house back in December but found it had foundation issues so that was the end of that. The location is very ideal. We want to move away from the city, but need quick access to the freeway for work. The area we are looking in seems to be very stable, therefore not much has really gone up for sale in the last few months.
The house is gorgeous, and I would love to go check it out, but only if I am sure we would consider it. It has a great backyard that seems to back up to field/wetlands/woods, so very private from that standpoint. However, to the east of the property is a main road, then just east of that is the freeway. It's only 2 lane freeway, but a freeway none the less. The house does not face the freeway, but sits parallel to it. From the Bird's Eye View (thank you Bing!) it looks like mature landscaping, but some tall pines (I know, they several years to grow to ideal size) would help.
Basically, I love the house, and I would love for this property to work out, but the only downside is the closeness to the freeway. Thoughts? I have a feeling everyone will talk me out of it.... aaaaannd go!
