ABC News' Sheila Marikar reports:
Could Sarah Palin be looking to move into the lower 48?
The former governor of Alaska and may have purchased a home in north Scottsdale, Ariz., according to multiple published reports.
The Arizona Republic reported Saturday that Safari Investments LLC paid $1.695 million for an 8,000-square-foot home in what seems to have been a deal staged to protect the identity of a high-profile buyer. According to the paper, the gated stucco home features six bedrooms, five bathrooms, a six-car garage, a swimming pool, a spa and a basement equipped with a home theater, billiards room and wine cellar.
Representatives for Palin did not immediately respond to ABC News' requests for comment.
Arizona is familiar ground for Palin — it's home to Sen. John McCain, her running mate in the 2008 presidential election. Palin's eldest daughter, Bristol Palin, also bought a house in Maricopa, Ariz., earlier this year.
