The first photographs of Bristol Palin's brand new home in Arizona show a backyard perk that most homes in her native Alaska probably don't have... a swimming pool.
The pictures reveal a rather nondescript beige two-story home, with a fairly basic living room, bathroom and kitchen.
However, there's no denying that the piece de resistance is the large community swimming pool surrounded by desert Palm trees.
Bristol's first place: Bristol Palin's $172,000 two story, five bedroom home in Arizona is 3,900 square feet
Despite only coming in third on the reality TV competition Dancing With the Stars, the 20-year-old daughter of Sarah Palin has still managed to buy a five bedroom home in Maricopa, Arizona.

The 3,900 sq ft property is in a development called Cobblestone Farms, and was built in 2006 then purchased for $329,560.
The two-level, brown stucco house has a tile roof, two and a half baths, a three-car garage, a landscaped front and back yard, and of course access to that pristine swimming pool.
The house was purchased in May for $137,200 by Michael and Cynthia Smith, a couple from North Dakota.
They fixed it up and put it back on the market, and the house went into foreclosure in January of this year.
Bristol bought it this month for $172,000 in cash.
Sarah Palin has been a frequent visitor to Arizona since she ran for vice president with Senator John McCain in 2008.
Michael Smith, 55, says: 'I'm not sure why she wanted to buy that home, but we are real happy for her. 'She seems like a nice girl. We're excited for her.'

Bristol's spot in the finals of Dancing with the Stars was surrounded by controversy for her low scores.
After the show ended she said she was ready to return home to Alaska and spend time with her family.
However, there are reports that Bristol may have chosen to buy her first house in Arizona in order to attend Arizona State University's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
