Take a look around Sarah Palin’s ultra-lavish Arizona compound

It’s up for grabs for for a cool €2.2 million.

FORMER ALASKA GOVERNOR and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is putting her enormous Scottsdale, Arizona mansion up for sale.

The nearly five-acre gated compound includes an enormous 8,000-square-foot main house flanked by a full-size lighted basketball court, a pool and spa house, and a hot tub.

The home last changed hands in 2011 for $1.695 million (about €1.57 million), according to public records obtained by the LA Times. Assuming Palin was the most recent buyer, and the house sells for at least its asking price of $2.4 million (about €2.2 million), she’ll make a tidy profit.

Richard F Barker of Keller Williams Arizona Realty has the listing.
