Beauty on the Beach

Japanese-inspired serenity comes to the Hamptons at 31 Gilberts Path in Amagansett.


A perfect marriage of sophisticated design and natural splendor, 31 Gilberts Path in Amagansett takes the concept of an East End beach house up a notch. This effortlessly elegant home sits on the eastern edge of Beach Hampton in Amagansett’s Dunes in a secluded location set back from the road. Designed by ATM founder Tony Melillo, the estate boasts a plethora of details gleaned from design practices from across the globe, including Japanese and Danish principles. Beyond the meticulously laid terrazzo stone at the front of the house, authentic blackwood shou sugi cedarwood lining the home—charred using a traditional Japanese method— provides a dramatic black aesthetic throughout the exterior of the property. 

Indoors, a bespoke open concept VIPP kitchen from Denmark features a sleek island with seating, custom Vipp stove top and other premium appliances by Miele. A perfect backdrop for summer gatherings, the main floor boasts an accent wall and plank flooring created with Dinesen Douglas fir from Denmark. Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors open onto a spacious deck perfect for outdoor dining and lounging around the Paloform firepit. 

Peaceful sleeping quarters are nestled down the hall, and include a sprawling primary suite with a private deck enveloped by greenery, and a Jee-o Soho 01 freestanding outdoor shower with a pressure balance valve for rinsing off after the beach. Two other sunny bedrooms offer custom closets and sliding glass doors that open onto outdoor decks. For those who desire even more space, approvals are in place for a second-floor bedroom suite with balcony that will have glorious views of the dunes and beyond.

Furnishings and decor by Wyeth, curated by ATM, are available to purchase separately. Offered by Rylan Jacka of Sotheby’s International Realty for $4,685,000.
