What is the quietest and most upscale place to live within 10 klicks of CMU?

I live in Nong Han, San Sai too. 
The birds (feathered variety) causes a real racket every morning. I’m thinking of getting a shotgun and blast them all to smithereens. The few cows in the field opposite my house fortunately don’t moo or I will bbq them on my grill. Th leaves rustle in the wind so I cut the trees down. Now, just trying to figure out how to stop my gf from listening to her morlam music 🙂

Bluetooth wireless earphones, she gets what she wants , you get peace and quiet, win win...😉

But then if YOU got them, you could leave her, the trees and wildlife in peace...🤣

The butterflies flapping their wings must really p**s you off.

I trained my non barking Golden to rip off their wings.

Earphones alone won’t do. But the Bose noise cancelling headphones cost an arm and two legs.

I needed to escape the noise at my previous house also. Now I rent a place in Lannaville off the middle ring road near Meechok Plaza and its great. This is a very upscale moo bahn. Some of the nicest houses I have seen in Chiang Mai (I am talking more than 20M Bht. nice). I can hear a little traffic noise from the ring road but no booming music at all ever. Great location too.

What’s the approximate monthly rental for a 20M property? 30-40k baht?

Why do you stay?

Well, it's a magnificent luxury house. I like being 21 minutes from Central Festival and Sala Cafe, Makro is 14 minutes. But it's mostly the space, the pool, visual privacy, the luxury furnishings and high ceilings, modern bathrooms, electric gate and luxury mattress and bed.

 

I get up anyway at 6.30, so ten minutes of annoucing who donated to the Buddhist temple at max volume is not fatal. I have had fantasies of offing the dogs one by one though. And the power tool neighbour.

This moo bahn (Lannaville) seems to have very few houses for rent, though I don't check around to see. It's mostly upscale Thai families, some of which are quite wealthy. It has a small section of ten townhouse condos (owned by Thais). I lease one of them. I pay 19k/mon. and I like it a lot. Just across the little sub-soi from me is a compound with a very nice modern design house (15-18 ft. ceiling and a six car garage with several Mercedes and a custom imported Ford Mustang of all things) that probably cost well north of 20M. There are a number of houses like this around. If they were rented I am sure it would be for something north of 80-90K. There are a number of less ostentatious houses in the neighborhood that might rent for 30-40K. And there are a few dilapidated run-down places that might be had for 20K or less. I don't know.

I see a house for rent in a village without a gate.  Looks to be a large house overlooking a rice field on a very quiet street. Thai friend says rent 8000 per month.  I doubt you will find great luxury there.

Near The Green City Condo in San Sai Luang.

I really do not understand it.

I stayed in Oneplus condo a few years, just two streets from Soi 6 / Prasert  land and I never heard it at night. Noise stopped at 10 p.m. or so and with some white noise from the aircon and could not hear it.

I am saying this as a noise sensitive person.

Right, don't hear the local bar noise on the 19th floor but do on the 32nd. Trees, houses, walls deflecting ? 

OP, best of luck: Thailand is noisy all over everywhere and back.

people who like to eat food on green tables.

There are several condo projects west of 121 and up against the mtns... I would guess it is pretty quiet out there though I am not sure if these people like green tables or not..

Try the Land and House moobaans in Mai Hia. 

The name of the subdivision is Serene Lake and has three moobaans; Chang Doi, Siwalee Lake View and Natawan, plus multiple condos. There is a new moobaan under construction also but not yet finished. 

Houses and condos for rent there.

It meets all of your requirements and it is one of the nicest developments in all of CM.

An older and very well-kept develoopment is the Ban Nai Fun village off the Canal Road in Mae Hia / Hang Dong.  Then you just take the Canal road to CMU.

 

Or, as been mentioned, Serene Lake.  It's pretty nice, and big enough that it shouldn't get noise from anywhere else if you're reasonably close in the middle.   You might hear airplane noise though in one of their condominiums.

 What about the noise of grass growing?

I don't see how you will avoid noise. On my soi there are 3 homes 20-25 million Baht and 2 homes behind us at least 25 mil, but we still have chickens walking down the soi making a racket at 5:30-6:00 each morning. Whenever there are expensive homes around, there are always caretakers living on the grounds, who typically work construction during the day and they usually raise chickens. Besides that, there is a village on the other side complete with loudspeaker system addressed by the poo yai baan each day at 6:30, the house-warming parties, weddings, funerals........ It seems it is difficult to escape the noise.

That's a nice moobaan. A friend owns a home in there. The sois were badly in need of repair for years (I'm talking potholes that would do serious damage or even injury if you drove in one), but it seems they were repaired. But it's not all quiet in there as there are also caretakers living on the grounds and they raise chickens, etc.
