The son of legendary Texas oil man Bob West is selling this San Antonio home

Robert V. West III isn’t just the son of the legendary San Antonio oilman Bob West. He's an emergency medicine doctor, a lawyer, accomplished artist and much more.

The tastes of the polymath can be found throughout a house he's now selling near Fort Sam Houston.

“It’s an experience being there,” listing agent Rick Kuper said. “There’s a lot of character. It’s out of the ordinary with a blend of the old and the new. It’s not a boring house.”

The 1960s property has undergone numerous updates over the years and art adorns nearly every wall. While West’s own artistic works don’t come with the $799,500 house, Kuper said everything is for sale. Some of paintings really pull the room together, as the Dude said about his rug in The Big Lebowski.

One room contains a medical procedural chair for a Botox side business to keep things tight. Meanwhile, another room for yoga and meditation promises to keep things loose.

A variety of attractive woodwork styles adorn many of the ceilings, from exposed beams to patterns made with narrow boards. A third story cupola looks out over the nearly half-acre wooded lot. An outdoor entertainment area expands indoors with overhead doors that open up the sides of the garage for more space and a wet bar.

This home is listed by Rick Kuper with Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty.
