House Tour | The Westhampton Waterfront

Growing up, architect Stuart Disston often vacationed in Quoque, Long Island, and developed a soft spot in his heart for the Shingle-style houses that dotted the New York seaboard. “It’s a very indigenous American style,” the architect says. The lovely site on Moriches Bay in Westhampton offered this family from New York City an opportunity to create a relaxing and active compound for relatives and friends. Recalling gracious seaside living in the early 20th century, the Shingle Style was ideal for this new 6,200 square-foot residence. Porches grace the waterside elevation; terraces lead out to the pool and are adjacent to the kitchen as well. A second-floor porch off the master bedroom invites lounging, and built-ins and window seats encourage reading and chatting. Indoor and easily accessed outdoor spaces draw family members and friends together in informal gatherings around the pool, living room and large kitchen.
