A two-story penthouse in San Antonio, the former residence of one of Texas’ most prominent collectors and philanthropists, Linda Pace of Pace Picante Sauce, is on the market for $7,250,000.
One of San Antonio’s most prestigious and exclusive addresses, Camp Street is a luxury residential development originally developed by the late art collector Linda Pace. It was built in 1926 and served as the Duerler Candy Factory which is touted to be the oldest established candy factory in Texas almost a century ago. After the business did not survive The Great Depression, the building was used for several other companies over many years before being purchased in 2001 by Linda Pace. She converted it to a prestigious residential property and kept the top floors and rooftop as her own residence and exhibition space for her growing collection. The Linda Pace collection is now housed in the David Adjaye designed Ruby City art museum next door and the property has only changed hands once.
Spanning 15,076 square feet, the penthouse is spread across the top two floors of the building located in the historic Southtown district of San Antonio. A private rooftop features 7,500 square feet of open-air space, a jetted swim spa and irrigated gardens.
The six bedroom, seven full and three-half bathroom penthouse boasts over 2,000 square feet of auxiliary art storage separate from the unit. The residence can be accessed via private elevators. The lavish home features soaring ceilings, contemporary finishes, an industrial loft space with a Soho vibe, and expansive spaces fitting for entertaining throughout. Miele appliances are built into both kitchens, and a pocket porch terrace can be found on each floor.
The residence is currently home to one of the city’s top collections of contemporary art. Assembled by Linda’s friend, a serial entrepreneur, collector, and gallerist, the collection was curated with a focus on emerging artists.
Building amenities include four private underground parking spaces, park-like grounds, and a community gallery on the main level. The owner of the 5th floor has the unique opportunity to influence the building’s look and feel as Camp Street’s bylaws give them the right to display art in the common areas.
114 Camp Street #500 and #600 is listed by Douglas Elliman licensed associate Michael Reisor.
