Former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has finally sold her Scottsdale, Arizona, home after 8 months on the market. Though originally listed for $2.4 million, the house has recently sold for $2.275 million, according to the Los Angeles Times.

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, according to public records obtained by the LA Times. Richard F. Barker of Keller Williams Arizona Realty had the listing.
