I don't live in the Bay Area, so that would take some serious research;
however here in L.A., I can point to several NEW homes that are

Despite that, I wouldn't buy a "new" home, at all.  Having owned both new
and resales, I much prefer resales.  Less trouble, and I know what I'm
getting.  And, I can find lots of them that are covenant-free because they
were built before any restrictions were recorded.

Even my 1984-built 3500 s.f. modern hillside home in Chatsworth was
completely covenant-free, as that area didn't start recording restrictions
until 1989.

I'm still waiting for someone to show me a new housing development
that does not have an antenna restricting CC&R and/or HOA, esp. here
in the California Bay Area.  Nobody has shown me one yet.

For any ham wishing to own a NEW home, the only option in most metro
areas is to buy a "tear down" in a nice, established (old)
neighborhood and build your own home on its place: a prohibitively
expensive proposition for most people.   The "tear down" next door to
my last QTH sold for $800,000.  The house was razed and a new 4500 sq.
ft. home is being built in its place.  Quality new home construction
in this area costs about $250/sqft.  You do the math :-)
