Bristol Palin purchased of a five-bedroom house in a development called Cobblestone Farms, in Maricopa, Ariz., a Phoenix suburb.

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

The Palin family offered no comment on the sale, but it has generated speculation on what Bristol and her mother Sarah's plans are for the home. TMZ.com is reporting that Ms. Palin may be eying an Arizona college.

"I'm not sure why she wanted to buy that home, but we are real happy for her," Michael Smith, who owned the house with his wife, told The Arizona Republic. "She seems like a nice girl. We're excited for her."

Sarah Palin's connection to the Grand Canyon state goes back to her 2008 vice presidential bid alongside running mate John McCain, who has been a United States Senator for Arizona for the past 23 years.

Public records state the 3,900-square-foot two-level, brown stucco 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.

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.
