Editor's Note: Houston, the surrounding areas and beyond are loaded with must-have houses for sale in all shapes, sizes and price ranges. In this continuing series, CultureMap snoops through some of the best and gives you the lowdown on what's hot on the market.

Now that he's back in Austin and back at the University of Texas, former quarterback Vince Young, who led the Texas Longhorns to a 2005 national championship and spent six seasons in the National Football League is selling his Royal Oaks house in Houston at a reduced price of $815,000.

The house originally came on the market in July for $849,000 after Young, a Houston native, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

Walk through
Located in the west Houston subdivision built around the Royal Oaks Country Club, Young's former home at 12006 Legend Manor Drive is a traditional-style, two-story stone and brick structure within a gated community. Owners enter to find formal dining and living rooms, as well as a large family room with two-story ceilings. Windows lining this soaring space bring plenty of natural light inside, and a bar in convenient for entertaining. Additional seating is found in the connecting informal dining room.

The kitchen is complete with cabinetry, granite counters, stainless appliances and an island for prepping. The breakfast nook is large enough to serve everyday meals.

The master suite, designed on the first floor, features a double-door entrance and plush sitting area. Highlights of the master bath include frameless-glass shower, soaking tub and double-vanity counter. The oversized walk-in closet is accessible from the bath.

Upstairs, owners enjoy the media room for screening the latest films. The remaining three bedrooms are also on the second floor. In total, the home offers three full and one half-baths.

Step outside
Professional landscaping surrounding the custom swimming pool with spa await in the back, as does a gazebo and extra lawn. The garage extends to a two-car port-o-cochere, providing room for extra cars.

Square footage: 4,323

Asking price: $815,000
