Is there any recourse against a home builder for not following through with a verbal agreement?

Question Details: We purchased a new home 3 years ago and before we purchased the home, we asked and we were told by the home builder, that no 2 story homes would be build overlooking the back of our property. Within the past 6 months there are 2 new 2 story homes that have been build behind our property. In addition to a breach in our privacy, I am concerned that the presence of these homes will depreciate the overall resale value of our home. I understand that the builder cannot tear the homes down, however is there anything that we can do as homeowners to satisfy our concerns There are numerous accounts from other homeowners in the neighborhood that were told the same story.
