Renowned American ballerina Sono Osato is selling her incredible summer Hamptons estate in New York for a whopping $37 million.

The now 98-year-old former ballerina bought the waterfront estate in Bridgehampton back in the 1970s with her husband Victor Elmaleh.

The sprawling property features five bedrooms – each with its own fireplace – eight bathrooms and several grand salon-style entertaining rooms.

The Nantucket-style home, which sits on nearly four acres and is 7,200 square feet, also has a pool and tennis court.

Osato was the first American dancer to be part of the Ballet Russes de Monte Carlo.

She also danced with the American Ballet Theater. 

Osato and her late husband were only the second people to own the property after it was built in 1917.  

The former ballerina’s son, Niko Elmaleh, told the Wall Street Journal that she was listing the property because she wasn’t able to visit the home frequently anymore.

It was last renovated back in the 1970s.

‘The whole joy of living there is feeling like you’re not in 2018. There’s a sense of tradition about it,’ Elmaleh said. 

‘The new houses that have sprung up around us are very much more modern in style.’

The property is listed with Deborah Srb of Sotheby’s International Realty.
