"Nice Condo"

The Caprice neighborhood in Hercules is actually just one donut shaped street--Caprice Circle. This is basically a condominium complex, with lots of nicely kept condos. It is clean and well-maintained like most of these condos are and looks to date from around the 1980’s as far as I can tell. They sell for about $200,000; which is very moderate.

Schools are good and this is definitely the quietest area in Hercules. The drawback, of course, being that you are sort of out of the way. The schools are good and there is as close to a community feel as you get anywhere these days. (Though, of course, it is still possible to live next to someone for years without knowing what they do for a living or where they go when they disappear during the holidays.

Overall, however, I think Caprice is a pretty good value given all that.
