How concerned should we be about being on corner of Ashby? Both from our own enjoyment and from resell?

We strongly considered buying a house in that very neighborhood several years ago. We also were concerned about the traffic noise from Ashby, but in retrospect we kind of wish we'd bought the house - it was so lovely, and we end up spending so much time in that neighborhood, with all the great shops and restaurants. Easy access to public transportation or freeways too. I'd say, go spend some time on that block in the evening and weekends (when you're more likely to be home) and see what you think of traffic noise. (If you can, do so from inside the house.) You can always double-pane the windows if that hasn't been done already. It's a great neighborhood!

Hi Lainey,

I love this location and this home! It's so hard to settle in this market because there is such a strong inclination to wait for the BEST deal.

You are within walking distance of everything cool in the area. You can dip down to Ici for a scoop of ice cream any time you want. Me, I have to drive, park, feed the meter and worry about tickets before I can get my scoop.

Those are my thoughts...I hope that helps!

Best,

Nicole
