It's already in the works and will be right along the Turnpike and I would be willing to bet that all of the homes they build around that course will be sold quickly.

Like it or not, Fenney is going to be the "center" of The Villages in about 10 years. There will be gas stations, shopping, golf courses etc. It will all be interconnected and it will be gorgeous albeit "different" than the rest of The Villages as the developer modifies his concept of what society/retirees looking for in the current and foreseeable future.

I thought it would be just the opposite. Thank you for that explanation. My hearing is fine at this point so I don't have personal experience such as you explained.

Yup, sadly my hearing aids are also almost painful if there is a lot of background noise. They are great for my wife and I talking in our car or living room, or watching TV, but in general I have given up using them. Easier just to train my wife to yell at me in public!

The worse place I have found for hearing aid wearers in TV's is without doubt, The Lighthouse Restaurant. Unreal the noise in that place!!

Who doesn't like the sound of big trucks and hotrods.

I will take the traffic noise anyway over crying kids or barking dogs. And I love kids and dogs.
My two cents worth

Like most things it is a matter of opinion. YOURS is the only one that matters. You can adjust your landscaping to reduce noise.
You can install double thick glass windows.

As a kid, our apartment was looking down on elevated trains.
You do get used to it. Aside, our home is block, quieter than a home with siding. We have trains about three miles away and they do blow their whistle at crossings. If, you pay attention you can hear them at night. For me, it does not bother me.
Others are disturbed by by the noise of their air conditioning.

As stated,"worth the deal," it is your opinion. Is a golf view, a drainage ditch view, a real lake view worth the deal?

My wife and I walked the trail down there this morning and as we got closer and closer to the turnpike, we told each other how glad we were not to live that close to a busy highway. The noise was too much for us. And they are building a neighborhood that is closer to the turnpike than the trail is. Maybe they'll be adding noise abatement walls. That could help a lot though the view of a big ole honkin' wall isn't anything to brag about either.
