This townhome is the most expensive home on our list, but you get what you pay for here. It's a three-bedroom, three-bathroom one-time model home built in 2008 that has been fully upgraded. Two of the bedrooms are master-style suites that offer private balconies and large walk-in closets. You'll find an open living room and dining room that feature large built-in bookshelves. There are custom Art Deco chandeliers in the dining room. The kitchen includes honey maple cabinets, stainless-steel appliances, solid-surface counter tops and a custom island. You'll also find hardwood floors and Berber carpet throughout the home. The upstairs loft area has a tech center with a desk, and the tandem two-car garage has additional storage space. The subdivision pool and tennis courts are just around the corner from this home. The community also has an exercise area and spa, for which you'll pay a hefty $451 a month in association fees.
