Browsing by budget

If you had a million dollars, what could you buy? What about $10 million?

Prices vary so widely on the Midpeninsula that there are cottages for under $1 million and mansions for over $10 million. There are stately homes with lots of history, townhomes on lots not much bigger than themselves, and even a bit of open land for sale. Whatever the price range, it's probably somewhere on the Midpeninsula.
