PHOENIX – Cindy McCain has been busy lately, and not just in taking over as chair of the think tank named after her late husband.

Sen. John McCain’s widow purchased a gorgeous house in north-central Phoenix earlier this month, plunking down $2.8 million.

Maricopa County records show that the single-family home near Central and Glendale avenues was purchased Oct. 11 by the Cindy Hensley McCain Family Trust.

The trust also owns a condo near Camelback Road and 24th Street where the McCains lived whenever they were staying in Phoenix.

And, of course, there’s the family ranch in Cornville, near Sedona, where John McCain spent the final months of his life while battling brain cancer. He died Aug. 25.

Cindy McCain’s new digs were built in 2013 and boast French Country-style vaulted ceilings.

The five-bedroom, five-bathroom beauty features a gated courtyard, a home office with a private entrance and a game room.

Out back, there’s a gazebo, a built-in barbecue grill and a pool.

A week after the sale went through, the McCain Institute announced that it had elected Cindy as chair of the board.

The think tank was founded in 2012 as part of Arizona State University in order to “advance leadership based on security, economic opportunity, freedom, and human dignity, in the United States and around the world,” according to its website.

The institute has launched a “Mavericks Needed” campaign to promote John McCain’s values.
