What to do when your noisy neighbor turns out to be the southbound 2 Freeway? In the case of this newly listed Silver Lake home in the 240o block of Corralitas Drive, the front wall that faces the freeway across the street includes a layer of QuietRock, a type of drywall that the manufacturer claims absorbs more sound than traditional drywall and other materials. The Redfin listing gives top billing to the QuietRock over the stainless steel appliances, soaking tub and other amenities of the $649,000 home:
Starting with the Quite Rock” drywall used on the front walls, this sound reducing drywall allows you to walk into the living room and shut out all the noise of the hustle and bustle outside.
How much less hustle and bustle – or freeway roar – will be heard as a result of that layer of Quiet Rock? The listing does not say but a pair of ear plugs always helps.
