About Mark Young
Native Texan. Travelled away many years as a Federal LEO, now retired and run an investigations company and other small businesses. WE NOW OWN "THE HOMESTEAD" WEDDING AND EVENT CENTER www.thehomesteadonthehill.com - for guests with larger event needs!!!!!!!!!!!
Mark Young purchased this Estate in 2006
Why Mark Young chose Dripping Springs
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.

Beautiful home in quiet setting.
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.
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.
Beautiful property that fulfilled all our needs. Has every possible amenity, is well maintained, and I would recommend it highly. I would give it 5 stars.
Great Texas Round Up for old military friends
We wanted a place to stay which was privately situated with plenty of space for everyone. This well-equipped home had a great kitchen for preparing meals; spacious areas to hangout inside and out; and a homeowner while nearby (never intrusive) was very helpful with suggesting local attractions. We decided on Dripping Springs due to location between towns we planned to visit.
Perfect for family and friends in town for a friend’s wedding at Canyonwood Ridge. Great location for lots of area activities. Each bedroom has private bath which is a plus! Duke is a great host!
Girls weekend get away!!! The best!!!
Gorgeous home. Owner Mark was amazing with all our needs definitely would recommend.!❤️
What a perfect weekend! Very relaxing and Mark helped us with all our needs. We loved our visitor everyday. Duke almost came home with one of our girls. Everything was just fabulous!! Thanks again!!
This property is a slice of TEXAS on a quiet secure setting. It is in the middle of the numerous vineyards and wedding venues and a short hop to the excitement of Austin, Texas events. Very near Perdernales State Park, Hamilton Pool, and close to many other hill country attractions.
