About Mark Young

Native Texan. Travelled away many years as a Federal LEO, now retired and run an investigations company and other small businesses.

Mark Young purchased this estate in 2006

Why Mark Young chose Texas Hill Country

This home was/is my dream home. I spent a long time creating this and did a lot of building along side my sub-contractors. It still is a work in progress using native products and imports from Mexico and Indonesia hand selected. I wanted to create a leisure Texas gentleman's estate that was easy flowing and basically on one floor (for Texas gentleman's knees). Everything you need for cooking in the gourmet kitchen with commercial chef's gas stove. Spices and condiments, etc. are in the walk in pantry. All towels, linens, starterTP, and some travel paks of toiletries are included. I want this to be like you walked in to your favorite relative's home to relax and pamper yourself.

What makes this estate unique

In the middle of the Texas playgrounds. Lakes to the north, state parks within 15 minutes, wineries everywhere, country music in town and nearby, i.e. Luckenbach, Arnolds, and of course Austin's scene. Fabulous wedding venues within 15 minutes. Or just plain relaxing on the front or back porches to watch the deer, rabbits, road runners, and other creatures mill about the rolling 15 acres.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was the perfect house for our family to stay in during our wedding. It was close to the wedding venue and allowed everyone to have their own space while still being able to spend time with one another. The house and property are gorgeous. It's very peaceful and convenient to town. Mark, the host was very hospitable and made sure all of our needs were met. We will defiantly be back. Thank you Mark!

Beautiful home in quiet setting.

  • 5 of 5

One of the best homes our family has stayed in. 13 adults in town for a wedding and the home accommodated all of us quite comfortably. Plenty of parking for our four cars. The outdoor living space and pool are gorgeous. Mark is very nice and did everything to ensure we had a pleasant stay. We would stay here again and highly rrecommend Mark and his home.

Owner's Response: Deb and her family were a delight to host. They had 13 adults and a number of small children. They took pains to leave my home in very good shape and cleaned up very thoroughly. We were pleasantly surprised and would welcome them back any time. I recommend them highly to any other hosts.
