As El Cerrito's most popular neighborhood, St. Jerome's is known to be a quiet and family-friendly place that enjoys a wonderful mix of long-established residents and newly established households residing within this small four-block radius bordering Albany.
The homes here can be a bit more expensive than other El Cerrito properties because of the neighborhood's cache. Built in the '30s and '40s, St. Jerome's real estate tends to be made up of modest 2-3 bedroom homes with loads of charm. Many of them are spacious, well-built, split-level bungalows remodeled to show off the beautiful detailing, finely constructed built-ins and polished wood floors. The neighbors in St. Jerome's take pride in their gardens and most homes have well-groomed front and back yards.
St. Jerome's can't be beat for convenience. It's only blocks from Memorial Park in Albany and Solano Avenue. Even closer still is the Colusa Circle where a local farmers market, family friendly pub and grocery market can be found. The renovated El Cerrito Plaza is nearby, as well as the El Cerrito BART station.
