If freeway noise is an issue, just don't buy on Martha Ann! I live on Tucker, just 2 homes from Kensington, which as you know on the other side of that is Martha Ann. Yes I can hear the freeway, just a whooshing sound. Honestly I find it comforting & when I'm in areas where it's completely & totally quiet, it just feels odd.
I was born on Rossmoor's "busy" street, Foster Rd., so I've had it both ways, busier street & closer to the freeway. We have a pool in the backyard so when the spa is draining into the pool or the pool pump or kreepy krawler is on, it drowns out some noise. Seriously though, you just get used to it. If you don't want a home with a pool, then a fountain usually does the trick when sitting on the back patio.
You must be talking about the listings on Quail Run or the West end of Copa De Oro. They're both close to Martha Ann, but not ON it. One of the homes on Quail Run, the owner is taking a bit of a hit, it's the popular Estates model & does have a pool. Needs upgrading, but is in good condition otherwise.
I'm a Rossmoor native & expert in the area. I'm Chairwoman of the Rossmoor (volunteer) Homeowner's Association's Welcome Committee. I hope to meet you sooner, but will surely meet you when you move in!
