This newly built Missouri home is the second largest in our roundup, which means it can pack in a few more amenities. The one-and-a-half story, Mediterranean-style house has three bedrooms, three full baths and one half bathroom. There's a walk-in shower and his-and-her closets in the master suite. It features a foyer with a curved staircase, plus a great room with a hearth and wall of windows. This home also has a breakfast room, an eat-in kitchen and a formal dining room. The kitchen boasts a built-in range and oven, stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. The floors alternate between wood and carpeting. It also has a full walk-out basement. Community amenities include an exercise area, a pool, tennis courts and a park, but that means there's a $1,110 annual association fee.
