The Trout Run Preserve was only recently developed on a North/Northeast facing hillside which is bounded by McColl Drive and County Rd 13. It has excellent accessibility as a result, but the noise from both highways could be more than you would like. The views from the top of the development - near McColl Road - are sweeping and stunning. On clear days you can see downtown Minneapolis, some 15 miles away. The builder in Trout Run (Ron Clark) is certainly reputable and the home designs and development layout are very nice. Shopping is readily available nearby on Cty Rd 42 and Cty Rd 13, with big box stores, restaurants and such all within a 5-10 minute drive.
I would recommend that you come down to Trout Run during the evening commute - say 4 to 5pm and see if the ambient noise from Hwy 13 is acceptable to you. Please let us know if we can be of any assistance with finding you a home in Trout Run or other parts of our neck of the woods!
