"A Nice Little Bouquet of Homes"

So here is what is cool about the Flowers neighborhood here in Hercules: like the Birds neighborhood to the south, the streets here are named after flowers: Poppy Court, Iris Road, Heather Avenue, Daisy Court, Azalea Court, Lotus Court. I always dig a good themed neighborhood--at least you always know when you are getting close to where you’re going.

Okay, but its not the only cool thing about the Flowers neighborhood in Hercules. The other thing I like about his neighborhood is that a lot of the streets are on a bit of a sloop, so you get some pretty good views from many of the homes here. These are big upper-middle class Contemporary style homes dating from the late 70’s through the 80’s, and following that aesthetic they have big streets and big, bright living rooms.

The homes here are relatively affordable, running the $300,000 range which is a good price for these kinds of homes.

There are also a lot of nearby rolling hills which may (I’m not sure) have some nice spots for a little hike, bike or dog walk.

The rest is pretty typical of Hercules: average schools, relatively low crime and terrible commutes.
