PALISADES, N.Y. (AP) - A suburban New York house owned by Mikhail Baryshnikov is on the market for an asking price of about $4 million.

The Wall Street Journal says the ballet great and his wife, Lisa Rinehart, are becoming empty nesters.

Baryshnikov bought the house in 1981. The 19th-century home features six bedrooms, 5 1/2 bathrooms and sweeping views of the Hudson River.

Baryshnikov danced with the Kirov Ballet in Russia before defecting to Canada in 1974. He later shot to superstardom as a principal dancer at New York City Ballet and American Ballet Theatre. On TV, he appeared in “Sex and the City,” and starred in the movies “White Nights” and “Company Business.”

The house is in Snedens (SNEE’-dehnz) Landing. The artists’ enclave is in the hamlet of Palisades, N.Y., about 20 miles north of the city.
