Brits, Home Owner, Nova, OH
I am NOT a realtor, so let me respond:
The airplane noise is fairly constant, but if you don't mind a little noise, it evetually becomes like "white noise" and you stop hearing it. However, if you have a low noise tolerance level, you'll hate it. Also, international flights (the really big planes) take off between 5-6p and 10-11p, so even if you have a really high tolerance for noise, you'll STILL hear it at these times.
Not worth it, and will negatively impact your resale value when you go to sell. Oh sure, being a fairly new area for development, all of the homes, stores, schools, shops, etc. are squeeky new and pretty, but we all age. Plane noise will really be a big negative then once the homes and community don't have that pretty newness on their side!
There are some beautiful homes going up in that area, but personally I would Just Say No.
I live in the 20105 zip code, Kirkpatrick Farms. I would agree that every person has a different tollerance for noise so it is hard to say what might bother one might not bother another. In general the noise coming form Dulles is not very loud where i live. I have not had any complaints from my neighbors about airplane noise either. Every so often you might hear a jet passing by but nothing that is constant.
Let me know if you have additional questions about the area.

As a former resident of South Riding (20152) and one who grew up walking distance from the O'Hare International Airport in Chicago - one thing anyone will tell you is that tolerance for noise levels will vary from person to person. Not to mention traffic patterns for IAD will change several times a day.
I just sold a single family home to clients in the Lenah Run community of Aldie (20105), and they were completely comfortable purchasing, having visited the homesite several times during different times of the day.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions regarding the area or homebuying process in general.
