Sono Osato and her Hamptons home

Legendary ballerina Sono Osato is looking to sell her Hamptons summer home for $37 million.

Osato’s family listed the Bridgehampton home, which sits on nearly four acres and spans 7,200 square feet, the Wall Street Journal reported. The house, located on Quimby Lane, has five bedrooms (each featuring a fireplace), five full bathrooms, three half-baths, a tennis court, a pool and 300 feet of frontage on Sagg Pond.

Sotheby’s International Realty’s Deborah Srb is handling the listing.

Osato, 98, was the first American dancer to join the Ballet Russes de Monte Carlo. She also danced with the American Ballet Theatre and played Ivy Smith in the original Broadway production of “On the Town.”

One of her sons, Niko Elmaleh, 71, said they are selling the home because his mother isn’t able to use the property often. His late father, Victor Elmaleh, chairman of real estate development firm World-Wide Group, renovated the home in the mid-1970s.

“The whole joy of living there is feeling like you’re not in 2018. There’s a sense of tradition about it,” Niko, an executive vice president at World-Wide, said. “The new houses that have sprung up around us are very much more modern in style.”

Srb told the Journal that the $37 million could be torn down to make way for a new structure. [WSJ] — Kathryn Brenzel
