We are planning to buy a house in about a year, primarily using money from my stock that
came from options...


You should start to sell this stock now and gradually invest it in a short-term investment like the Vanguard Short-Term Bond Portfolio. Plan to sell perhaps 1/12 of the total you plan to use for a house per month for a year, unless you're more of a player than I and want to sell it all at once.
