Fashion Designer Tony Melillo Lists
Minimalist-Chic Beach House in Amagansett

Listed by Ryan Jacka for Sotheby’s International Realty for $4.99 Million

Fashion designer Anthony Thomas Melillo is certainly known for his luxurious contemporary sportswear line for men, women and kids. In fact, the ATM boutique on Newtown Lane in East Hampton is a must-shop for the perfect t-shirt and everything else you need for weekend wear. However, Tony is also the talent behind his minimalist-chic modern beach house privately set back on the eastern edge of Beach Hamptons on Gilberts Path in Amagansett’s Dunes, only a short distance from the deeded beach path and essentially just a block from the ocean. The tasteful terrazzo stone in front sets the gracious mood with beautifully individualized flair, expressed as well in the Shou Sugi Blackwood cedar siding gracing the exterior-charred using a special Japanese technique.

This 1800 square foot home on .68 of an acre has a hint of Asian allure as it elegantly maximizes indoor and outdoor space offering three bedrooms with two full bathrooms, a large open chef’s kitchen with a breakfast bar and an airy family room. However if your lifestyle demands expansion or greater privacy from house guests or family, approvals are in place for a second-floor bedroom suite with a balcony providing glorious views of the dunes and beyond.


This indoor-outdoor living experience is perfect for entertaining, enriched by an accent wall and plank flooring created of Dineson Douglas fir from Denmark. Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors open to a spacious deck, a natural place to enjoy alfresco meals and cocktails, especially while lounging around the Paloform fire pit.

The custom VIPP kitchen from Denmark is well-appointed for the chef featuring a stunning island with seating, custom VIPP stovetop and other sleek yet highly functional appliances by top tier brands including Miele.

Quiet sleeping quarters reflecting the calming vibe are nestled down the hall, highlighted by a master bedroom with a private deck enveloped by greenery. This home is truly a getaway, it feels like a serene retreat with exceptional spa benefits. The JEE-O’s Soho 01 freestanding outdoor shower with a pressure balance valve is great for freshening up after a surfing session or a pre-happy hour pick me up ending an easy day at the beach.

Secondary sun-filled bedrooms, also with custom closets, have sliding glass doors leading to peaceful outdoor decks, listen for the sound of the surf. Top-of-the-line spa baths are all custom as well, with high-end minimalist fixtures by Woodmelbourn Australia to complete the relaxing, pampered experience. Are we there yet? A sojourn in this private Amagansett oasis is truly something to look forward to.
