In 2007, after accepting a job as senior designer at Robert Stilin’s firm, Rajaie Khoury traded Los Angeles for the Hamptons’ dreamy beaches. But rather than moving into an oversized beachfront property in Montauk or Bridgehampton, Khoury opted for a quaint abode in the charming port village of Sag Harbor. There, he found and fell in love with a classic shingle-style house on Main Street, built in 1820 by Captain James Pierson and complete with enchantments of that period—wide plank floors, roomy fireplaces, and an enclosed waterfront porch. “It’s a magical place that has all the sophistication of nearby New York City,” says Khoury, “but with the spirit of a secluded country house and the serenity of coastal living.”
In the living room, a turn-of-the-century trunk doubles as a coffee table.
