You set a certain budget for your house hunt—and you can’t go a penny over it. But what if you want to expand your search a wee bit beyond a specific neighborhood? We decided to play the comparison game by exploring what you can buy for a certain dollar value in various California neighborhoods in a new series we’re calling “Cali Comparables.” We’re going across the Golden State to give you an idea of how far your dollar goes in certain areas.

Pebble Beach is practically synonymous with world-class golf and million dollar homes. From the town’s 18 private courses and eight public courses dotting the dramatic landscape to the stunning rock formations whipping across the coastline, its beauty has historically commanded the highest real estate values — and attracted the wealthiest golf enthusiasts to its shores. For this rare edition of Cali Comparables, we decided to let our imaginations run wild and the “what if’s” roam free.

How much mansion could you afford in Pebble Beach if you were 1) a billionaire and 2) had a healthy budget of about $20 million (or slightly over/under)?
