Our Story

Step inside a Royal Texan Home and immediately you’ll notice a difference. Our homes, our people and our philosophy all reflect our commitment to excellence in building, design and service. We believe home buyers shouldn't have to compromise. The expression “dream home’ is often discussed but rarely achieved. We offer no upgrades, because none are needed. Every Royal Texan Home is finished to a standard of detail not offered outside the expensive Custom Home, until now.

We are a bespoke Custom Builder offering English Manor Inspired Homes from $130 to $140 psf.

All Royal Texan Homes have beautiful finishing, integrated indoor / outdoor design and peace of mind at an affordable price point. Our homes, our communities and our integrity offer buyers the opportunity to live in extraordinary homes.

We believe every home should be a dream home. We believe homes should richly contribute to the lives of the people who own them, the communities they are placed in and the people who experience them. This is what home building should be about. We don’t build houses, we build homes.

Our Homes

“We will only build the homes we want to live in”. Our founders vision, experience and pride of product means exacting standards, and a level of finishing that is difficult to match in every Royal Texan Home.

Our Manor Home Collection reflects the beautiful cottages, farm and stately homes of the rolling northern English countryside.

Our American Crafted Collection offers buyers the quaint reminiscences of a bygone era when craftsmanship and family life coincided.

Our kitchens are built around professional grade Italian Bertazzoni appliances. These appliances come in a standard steel finish, but if you prefer why not show your passion for the kitchen with painted finishes from the Ferrari or Lamborghini factories in Italy!

All our cabinets are custom and designed with exacting specifications for your new home.

Space in any environment is important and nowhere more so than your new home. Our tall flowing rooms allow for oversized doors and base board trim. Our outlets are all located in the baseboards which leaves your walls beautiful and unblemished.

Our bathrooms all feature marble and high end tile, combined with great storage and discreet medicine cabinets. Great lighting is important here as is a relaxed and opulent feel.

Our closets are custom hand built on site, fully trimmed and feature great hanging space, shelving, draws and plenty of outlets.

All bedrooms are ready for your AV equipment and are designed with consideration of both form and function.

Game rooms and media rooms are all prewired for 7.1 surround and create a wonderful gathering place for your friends and family.

We are a proud member of the National Association of Home Builders, Texas Association of Home Builders and Greater Houston Builders Association. Our desire for excellence ensures we stay ahead of building design, legislative and regulatory requirements.

All homes are built to exceed current required building standards and Royal Texan Homes insists that the Foundations and Frames are engineered and certified both before, during and after the build. Each home is individually treated for termites at the frame and concrete level alleviating the largely ineffective soil treatments.

All stages of the build are inspected by independent inspectors and the sub-contractors are all insured and certified as is required by all respected General Liability insurers.

Additionally all homes are offered with a comprehensive home buyers warranty that covers at least 10 years.


Our Founder

Inspired by heritage, Royal Texan Homes is the unique vision of our founder Mark Garraty.

After leaving the prestigious Reading University White Knights program in the UK, Mark joined one of the most established firms of Chartered Surveyors in London, located in the famous Lincolns Inn Fields.

Over the course of almost a decade, Mark personally found and renovated post industrial revolution homes and cottages in the North of England and was at the vanguard of regeneration programs that have transformed English cities such as Liverpool, Leeds, Doncaster and Hull.

Mark’s passion was to bring the build quality and elegance of these unique homes to the American market and make them available not just to the exclusive custom home buyer but to all who desire a standard of home and living that is currently not served in the conventional real estate market.
