Sono Osato—a famed ballerina and the first American dancer to be a part of the Ballet Russes de Monte Carlo—just listed her Hamptons home at 236 Quimby Lane in Bridgehampton for $37 million, reports the Wall Street Journal.

The now 98-year-old former dancer purchased the home with her husband, Victor Elmaleh, back in the ’70s, but it hasn’t changed much since then. Osato’s son, Niko Elmaleh, told the Wall Street Journal that Osato isn’t able to use the property as often as she used to, which is why she is selling. Elmaleh and his brother, Tony, even hosted their weddings at the estate.

Waterfront on Sagg Pond, the 7,200-square-foot home is sited on nearly four acres of land, featuring views over both the pond and the ocean. Built in 1917, the structure has no history of flooding and is located in a convenient no-flood zone, giving the new owners the best of a waterfront property.

Interior features include multiple fireplaces, hardwood floors, an oceanview artist studio, and early 20th-century details throughout.

Outside, there’s a pool and tennis court. The property is listed with Deborah Srb of Sotheby’s International Realty.
