Politician Sarah Palin ready to pass the reins at her equestrian estate in Scottsdale


Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has listed her gated estate in Scottsdale, Ariz., for sale at $2.499 million.

Built in 2001, the nearly 8,000-square-foot home is set at the end of a wraparound driveway. The main house is a blend of Santa Barbara, Tuscan and Spanish styles. High ceilings, chandeliers and wrought-iron railings are among interior details.

A media room/theater, a wine cellar, six bedrooms and six and a half bathrooms are among the living spaces, which take in mountain views. One of the two master suites includes a rooftop deck.


The resort-themed backyard features fireplaces off the covered patio and veranda. A built-in grill station, a fire pit, a pool, a spa, water-saving synthetic lawn and a lighted sports court complete the more than four-acre equestrian-zoned grounds.

There’s a six-car garage.
