Broadway Legend Jerome Robbins’ Bridgehampton Home Sells for $12.5M

A quintessential Hamptons beach house, last lived in by the late Broadway legend Jerome Robbins, just found a buyer. Perhaps most famous for choreographing and directing the original West Side Story and Fiddler on the Roof, it is undisputed that Robbins is one of the greats. The visionary produced beautiful dance numbers both on stage and on film, and this Bridgehampton home was the ideal place for him to recharge and create. Now onto its next act, the abode has changed hands for $12.5 million.

Sold for the first time in 40 years, the airy dwelling offers scenic views of the ocean and Mecox Bay from every angle. Set on an acre of land, this also includes 118 feet of private beachfront. Along with outdoor luxury perks like a 45-foot pool, the property has two bedrooms, two full baths and one powder room across 1,100-square-feet of interior space. Though the new owners are keeping a low profile, Mansion Global confirmed that they plan to keep the circa-1930s home intact.

Robbins left the serene property to his namesake foundation back in 1998 after his passing, but got to enjoy it for 20 years beforehand. Proceeds from this sale will go to the foundation and ultimately keep help supporting the performing arts.

Marilyn Clark, Martha Murry, and Frank Newbold of Sotheby’s International Realty held the listing.
