"Worth the Voyage"

The Baypointe neighborhood, deep into the hills of Hercules is mostly just a big condominium project with those sort of bland gray buildings that are fairly common in condominiums. Streets here like in several other neighborhoods in Hercules are set up thematically according to a nautical theme: Porthole Court, Malibu Drive, Lighthouse Court, Oursman Court, Scupper Court.
These are nice little condos built in the late 80’s and the typical unit runs between $100,000 and $200,000.

There is one street that goes off by itself up and away from the condos: Midship Drive. It has lots of newer homes and is a pretty nice spot with bigger homes.

What is nice about this area is that you get a lots of opens spaces up here where you can easily go for walks since your home is right up against them.

The other nice thing is that, unlike in most Hercules, the elementary school, Hanna Ranch Elementary, does really well on its achievement tests.

Overall, one of the better spots in Hercules for those with young kids or small families.
  • Nice Condos
  • Good Elementary
  • Cool Out of Way Spot
  • Critter Problems
  • Pretty Far from Everything
  • Mediocre High School/Middle School
