PALISADES, N.Y. -- 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, 512 bathrooms and sweeping views of the Hudson River.

Baryshnikov starred onstage at the American Ballet Theatre and on the TV show "Sex and the City."

He opened New York City's Baryshnikov Arts Center in 2005 and is the artistic director.

The house is in Snedens Landing. The artists' enclave is in the hamlet of Palisades, N.Y., about 20 miles north of the city.
