The former penthouse residence of Texas artist and philanthropist Linda Pace, of the very same salsa brand name, is up for sale in San Antonio's Southtown district just 80 miles south of Austin. The home was fully decorated by Pace herself and comes with a $7.25 million price tag.

Located in Camp Street Residences, a luxury living development created by Pace on 114 Camp St., the penthouse spans 15,000 square feet across the two top floors with two kitchens, six bedrooms, seven bathrooms and three half bathrooms.

The building is nearly 100 years old and was built to be the Duerler Candy Factory, which closed after the Great Depression. Many businesses moved in and out of the building, but it was converted into residential space by Pace in 2001. She kept the top two floors to herself to house her many collections and passed away in 2007.

Private elevators and cargo elevators go up to each residence, where inside you'll find futuristic modern fixtures, sparkling white walls and floors, sky-high ceilings, open space and Miele appliances. The property also comes with 2,000 square feet of auxiliary storage space.

Think you can't have outdoor space while living in the city? Think again—the condo has 7,500 square feet of completely private outdoor rooftop space, complete with an Ipe wood deck, jetted spa, irrigated gardens and 360-degree views of the cityscape.

The home will put you right in the center of the arts—the first floor of the building is a community art gallery and more of Pace's collection is housed next door in the Ruby City Art Museum. The owner of the fifth floor also has the unique opportunity to display art that can impact the display of the building.

The listing is held by Douglas Elliman licensed associate Michael Reisor.
