"Hidden Away Residential Street"

Soule Avenue is a pretty residential street that breaks south and then east off of Boyd in Pleasant Hill. Soule is basically made up of single families homes dating to the late 40’s (most seem to have been originally built in 1947). These are mostly Ranch style homes, but they are so nicely kept and the street is so leafy and idyllic that it doesn’t at all take on the typical look of a neighborhood of this kind. In fact, the typical home here has a white picket fence, a biggy shady tree and nicely kept topiary on immaculately green lawns.

Basically this is a hidden away little residential street, quiet and perfect for raising a family. I came here to take a look at detached studio, that was really little more than just a room in someone’s house--no way it would meet my needs though I can imagine a college student taking the room and making something of it.

The typical home here sells for between $550K and $750K. The neighborhood is safe and the schools are strong. Overall a pretty nice place to live.
