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.
