Bristol Palin: Inside Her Giant Arizona House (Photos)


Bristol Palin homeYou know you want to see inside the new Arizona home of Bristol Palin. Don't you, don't you?

We, too, were curious to see the enormous 3,900-square-foot foreclosure home that Bristol recently purchased with $172,000 cash. Because that's a lot of square footage and cash for a single 20-year old with unnamed plans in Arizona.

Although the rumor mill has Bristol Palin attending college at Arizona State University (ASU), Chris Callahan, the dean of the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at ASU, denies this gossip. Bristol Palin is "not a student. She hasn't applied. It is pure fiction," says Callahan. "If anybody had called and asked me that, we would have been glad to tell them."

When I was 20 years old, I was in college, working a couple jobs, and living in a 1-bedroom apartment with my best friend and a guy friend of ours. He got the bedroom, and my best friend and I shared the dining room as a bedroom. We hung a curtain between the dining room and the minuscule living room, I think. The place was tiny, so I'm a little aghast to see the size of Bristol's first home.

If only when I was 20 my mom was the conservative Alaskan governor turned vice presidential candidate ... and if only I got knocked up by a total creep and learned how to dance a little on national TV ... oh wait, nevermind ...

Okay, let's take a peek inside Bristol's house:

In any case, this looks like a great starter home for the single mom. Plenty of room for her son Tripp to run free. Nothing too extravagant going on but loads of room and wide open beige space to make her very own.

What size house or apartment did you live in at age 20?

I lived in a 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment. Although, I did have a large bedroom, the kitchen was super tiny where the fridge would hit the door! lol. But it made due until we had our son, then we moved

Sounds like someone is a little jealous of Bristol. She is making an honest living, providing for her child and was very lucky to take advantage of the crappy housing market and purchase a house.

I lived in a one bedroom apartment with a kitchen so small that I didn't even have room for a freezer- just a mini-fridge.

I agree with billsfan. What do you care? To answer your Q, at 20 I was finishing my bachelor's at a non-residential college, living with / helping for my mom & younger sibs, working 2 jobs, and getting ready to go to law school.

I am 21, married for 2 years to a US active duty army man, with one toddler and one on the way. We live in a 900 sq ft 2 bedroom apartment that could probably fit in her kitchen.

I would like to know where was your snarkiness when Chelsea Clinton got an 100l a year job fresh out of college because of her mom the Senator. And how insulting you keep refering to her as being "knocked up". Can you think of something more mature?

Cool, She got a good deal.

Ok ya all I live 2 miles from her new house. Yup we are in

the middle of no where! The houses out here are very cheap mine is a 2400 sq ft house and sold for 63,000. I'm a little less then thrilled about her moving here, but many are excited.
