"A Nice Little Nest with Plenty of Parking for the Chickadees"

Thrush Court is a quiet cul-de-sac in the Birds neighborhood of Hercules. I came here with a friend to look at a house for her and her kids. She is going through a divorce and the two of us were thinking of maybe trying to share a place like this. The rent for this place was pretty expensive for our budgets--close to $2000, but for a 4-bedroom that we could both share it could maybe work.

These are mostly 2-story Contemporary style homes of the kind that is typical of the mid-1980’s. The other cool thing about this court is that it has extra parking spaces at the middle of the court for when you have guests for a dinner party or something along those lines.

This is a great location in terms of looks. The homes are not too old and you feel pretty safe here. It is also somewhat elevated so you probably get a little bit of a sea breeze.

I hear that the schools in Hercules are also pretty good so it would be great for the kids.

My main concern with living in Hercules has to do with commutes. I hear that they are pretty terrible from here. That would be the main problem.

Overall though this is a pretty nice spot, and I definitely wouldn’t mind working here if I could work out the logistics of it.
