This home in Blue Springs is a reverse 1½-story with four bedrooms, 2½ bathrooms, an office and a three-car garage. It has a chef's kitchen, a butler pantry and a great room with wood floors and a gas fireplace. It's listed at $787,000 and is in the Spring Parade of Homes.

The Parade of Homes, held twice a year, is organized by the Home Builders Association of Greater Kansas City. Free parade guides are available at the HBA office at 600 E. 103rd Street (Interstate 435 and Holmes Road) in Kansas City. Guides also are available at each of the homes. 

The featured homes range in price from $250,000 to $1.6 million. Most are single-family homes, but there also are 30 maintenance-provided communities.
