Welcome to our apartment building.  

Hillcrest Investment Group, commonly referred to as Hillcrest Apartments, is a Mission Revival  style apartment building constructed in 1926.  It was acquired by the current owners in 1984.

Recently, nearly all of the windows were replaced.  This will provide more energy efficiency and reduce noise.  The exterior has had major stucco repairs and is completely waterproof and painted.  

The laundry room has brand new washers and dryers that use smartphone technology.

Many more improvements are scheduled over the coming year, some devoted to conveniences for you and energy conservation.

This is a three story wood frame structure with a stucco exterior.  It is an 18-unit building, consisting of 15 1-bedroom and 3 studio apartments.  The basement level contains six individual garages and 4 outdoor parking spaces and laundry facilities.  An innovative indoor bicycle rack was installed in the basement to maximize bicycle storage.

At the time of purchase, extensive remodeling was completed, including new interior wallboard and ceilings with R-C channel for sound proofing, new copper plumbing, complete re-wiring and installation of energy-efficient light fixtures, new cabinetry and kitchen/bathroom fixtures.  The majority of original mosaic tile bathroom floors were in excellent condition at the time and have since been maintained.  

During the Loma Prieta Earthquake in 1989, this building performed very well.  No repairs were needed after that event.  Since then, plywood sheathing was added to the roof when the roof was redone in 2002.  In addition the decorative roof structure was anchored to the roof.  In 2017, an entire wall of stucco was removed and replaced improving the overall integrity of the building.

This is a non-smoking building, including the use of electronic devices.
