Part-time Palm Beacher Louis B. Hager Jr. has paid $4.4 million for a North End custom home built five years ago at 339 Garden Road for its seller, Patricia Burt, according to the deed recorded Monday.

The “B” in Hager’s name, you might know, stands for Busch, as in Anheuser-Busch. Chairman and CEO of Northern Eagle Beverages in Oneonta, N.Y., he owns property in Cooperstown, N.Y., a record search shows. But he also has a house here on Ridgeview Road, a town where his family has longtime ties.

Sotheby’s International Realty agent Brooks Bishop represented Hager, who is married to Susanna Hager.

Paula Wittmann of Fite Shavell & Associates was the listing agent in the deal – a tidy arrangement, considering that her husband, Paul Wittmann, constructed the two-story house through his company, Wittmann Building Corp. The seller, meanwhile, owns another house at 105 Casa Bendita, records show.

The house Burt just sold has five bedrooms and nearly 5,200 square feet of living space, inside and out. Interior features include a well-equipped kitchen, travertine floors and a paneled library with a sit-down bar.

It also has impact-resistant windows – always a good selling point and a feature lacking in many older houses, says Paula Wittmann, who had listed the property for $4.75 million about a year ago.

In addition to being relatively new, the house also has been well maintained.

“I think that is key. The house was just very well done,” says Bishop, adding that it was a rare find, “especially in that price range.”

Meanwhile, the Palm Beach Board of Realtors’ Multiple Listing Service shows that a pending sale is in the works for the four-bedroom house next door at 325 Garden Road, listed at $2.35 million by agent Carole Hogan of Brown Harris Stevens. But the two deals don’t appear to be related.
