A good 5-7 blocks would be a safe bet. If the wind is coming out of the north, a mile might not be far enough, but the wind general comes out of the south to southeast.

I lived in Nottingham Country about 4 blocks south in the old section with the alleys, never noticed the noise and we were out at the pool all the time.

If you wanted to be sure, try to stay south of Kingsland Blvd. Let me know if I can assist you as I know many of those older Katy neighborhoods (lower taxes there as you well know!).

Depending on your price range, you may consider going north on BarkerCypress.
There are some great neighborhoods in South Cypress.

I live about 1 mile south of I=10 and the traffic is not noticeable here. If you were a couple of miles south there would definitely be no I-10 noise. I would be happy to help you find a quiet, peaceful home.
Thanks for reaching me at the Contacts below.
Have a Great Day!
