Home prices in Woodside, Atherton, Portola Valley, Menlo Park

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.

It's worth noting that the PV property for "under 2m" is a lot and not a residence but it will come with HOA dues whether you build there or not ;-/
