Peaceful Retreat in the Heart of Hercules

Affordable housing in the East Bay?  We’ve got it covered!  Our newest listing, centrally located in the heart of Hercules, exudes charm, character, and serenity.  Welcome to 708 Forest Run, a peaceful retreat tucked amidst a wooded, park-like setting in the heart of Hercules.  Located on the top floor at the end of a 4 unit building, you’ll love this private and serene home.

Built in 1990, this chic 2 bedroom, 2 bath home has been tastefully updated to enhance modern-day living.  With vaulted ceilings and large, dual-pane windows light shines in from all directions.  The living room and stylish dining room are perfect for hosting friends and family; the sunny kitchen features a new stove, updated countertops and a garden window that looks out into the trees.  The spacious master bedroom features vaulted ceilings, new carpet and two large closets with custom closet organization shelving.  Fresh paint, updated floors, and in-unit laundry make this home move-in ready.

Off the dining room is access to a sunny balcony framed by wooded trees.  Leave the door open to create easy indoor-outdoor entertaining or simply allow the breeze to blow through.  This unit is one of 8 units that feature its own driveway leading to a private garage.

The complex is set in an enchanting eucalyptus grove and provides a cozy retreat from the daily routine.  There is a community pool and hot tub, perfect for relaxing in the afternoon.  The neighbors are friendly and greet each other with hello; the community is active and you will often see people walking their dogs, jogging or pushing strollers along Village Parkway Circle, a perfect 2 mile loop.  The clubhouse is ideal for small meetings.

The location is simply ideal: the building itself is its own private oasis but within minutes of incredible shopping, top-rated restaurants, and public transportation.  Shop at Sprouts and Trader Joe’s, dine in at Hunan Villa or grab some chicken wing from Mountain Mikes.  Looking for things to do at night?  Listen to live music at East Bay Coffee and grab a cocktail from Pear Street Bistro.  Commute to work?  Casual carpool and the SF Express Lynx bus are around the corner.  And you can’t beat the near-perfect weather year round.

Whether you are looking for a space to host friends and family, a peaceful retreat to come home and unwind, or a community-focused lifestyle to raise a family, this home has it all.

Oh, and the best part?  This stunning home is listed at $315,000.  You read it right.
