Quarterback Vince Young, who led the Texas Longhorns to a 2005 national championship and spent six seasons in the NFL, mainly with the Tennessee Titans, is selling his Houston home at a reduced price: $815,000.

The 4,323-square-foot house, located in the Royal Oaks neighborhood, originally went on the market in July for $849,000 after the Houston native filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

Located in the west Houston subdivision built around the Royal Oaks Country Club, Young's former home at 12006 Legend Manor Dr. 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 countertops, stainless appliances and an island for prepping. The breakfast nook is large enough to serve everyday meals.

The first-floor master suite 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.

Professional landscaping surrounds the custom swimming pool and spa in the back, which also boasts a gazebo. The garage extends to a two-car porte-cochère, providing room for extra cars. The home is listed with Vintrisa Fontenot of Carrington Real Estate.
