Across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco lies Marin County: affluent, coastal, ruggedly beautiful. Revered for its charming nautical-themed villages, protected wilderness and stunning Pacific coastline, the region in recent years has been better known for having some of the nation’s most expensive ZIP codes. With that in mind, we have set our latest budget for “Cali Comparables” at a healthy $3 million (give or take). So, how much house can you buy? We take a closer look.
