Fashion designer Tony Melillo is still looking for a buyer for his sleek modern beach house in Amagansett. The home, taken off the market in early April, is now listed with Rylan Jacka of Sotheby’s International Realty for $4.995 million.
Located just one block from the ocean on Napeague, the home is set on the eastern edge of the Beach Hampton in Amagansett’s Dunes.
Melillo purchased the 0.68-acre property in 2016 for $1,694,000. Originally built in 1994, underwent a major renovation in 2020. It features a distinct Blackwood Shou Sugi cedar wood and exterior siding, charred using a special Japanese technique and imported from Blackwood Siding in Canada.
With 1,800 square feet of living space, the home features three bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a large open kitchen and family room.
Approvals are already in place for a second-floor bedroom suite with a balcony that will afford striking views of the dunes and beyond, according to the listing.
The open-concept main living space features walls of glass that allow natural light to pour in and provide an unobstructed scenic view. The floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors open to a spacious deck, where there is also a Paloform fire pit. The indoor-outdoor living space features an accent wall and plank flooring created by Dineson Douglas fir from Denmark.
Inside, the kitchen boasts a custom VIPP stovetop and other top-of-the-line appliances from brands such as Miele.
The current primary suite includes a private deck surrounded by lush landscaping and a JEE-Os Soho 01 freestanding outdoor shower that offers a pressure balance valve.
The spa bathrooms in the home offer high-end minimalist fixtures by Woodmelbourn Australia.
