"A Little Cramped but Okay"

Sycamore Villa is a little sliver of a neighborhood made up of lots of tightly packed newer tract homes. The homes here date from 2001--so they are pretty new and very nice, though very cramped. The streets feel like alleys and there really is no space inbetween homes--they are barely stand-alone.

Homes here sell for around $300,000 which would usually seem pretty low to me for these kinds of homes, but because things are so cramped here, seems about right.

The neighborhood is just to the east of the library and that “main” section of Hercules.

Otherwise this neighborhood is pretty much like every other neighborhood in Hercules: relatively low crime, average schools, terrible SF commutes. Pretty much par for the course for this little East Bay City.
