Deborah Magowan, the widow of former San Francisco Giants owner Peter Magowan, bought a home in Palm Beach for $6.1 million.

Records show Magowan bought the house at 444 Brazilian Avenue from Guy Rabideau, a trustee of The 444 Brazilian Avenue Trust. Rabideau is an attorney in Palm Beach who has signed documents on behalf of buyers.

Magowan, who is still listed as a principal partner of the Bay area baseball team, was married to the former owner, Peter, who bought the team in 1993. He stepped down as managing partner of the Giants in 2008. He died in 2019.

The 444 Brazilian Avenue Trust bought the home for $5.35 million in 2019. A year later, the home was listed for nearly $6 million. The asking price dropped to $5.75 million in July, according to Realtor.com

Alison Newton of Douglas Elliman represented The 444 Brazilian Avenue Trust, and Ann Summers with Brown Harris Stevens represented the buyer.

Built in 1999, the 4,111-square-foot home features three bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms. It also includes a pool, elevator and a garden designed by Mario Never.

Palm Beach has seen a flurry of sales over the past few months. Attorney Jonathan Sack paid $13.3 million for a non-waterfront mansion in Palm Beach, a textile designer bought a waterfront home for $7 million and the co-founder of a New York-based investment firm paid $5.5 million for a newly built spec home.
