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.

Last time we explored Marin County, home to George Lucas’ Skywalker Ranch and wealthy bohemian enclaves. Now we’re headed south down to San Diego County to explore what the rolling hills of Rancho Santa Fe have to offer. We have set the asking price at $3.5 million. Let’s take a look:
