Bristol Palin bought a five-bedroom house in a development called Cobblestone Farms, in Maricopa, Ariz., a suburb of Pinal County.

The 20-year-old daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin bought the house for $172,000 from a North Dakota couple, according to The Arizona Republic.

Public records state the 3,900-square-foot house was built in 2006, and purchased for $329,560. The property had been in foreclosure earlier this year. It has 2½ baths and a three-car garage, according to The Associated Press.

Hardly one to stay out of the headlines, Bristol Palin recently made big news -- and brouhaha -- with her stint on the 11th season of "Dancing With the Stars." She came in third, even though she had the least experience among all the contestants. After 10 weeks of stiff competition, "Bristol the Pistol," whose spot in the finals was surrounded by controversy for her low scores in previous weeks, said she was ready to return home to Alaska and spend time with her family.

It is unclear if her new Arizona home will be a permanent or seasonal residence.
