As applied to housing, the therm 'pre-war' isn't in common parlance in Miami, but maybe it should be. After all, WWII was as big of a thing in Miami as it was anywhere else in the U.S., and it also seemingly divides two eras in architecture and residential construction almost as starkly. So here we go. Built in 1937, this classic pre-war estate on Sunset Island 1 is 8,100 square feet of of impeccably restored goodness, with 8 bedrooms, 8 baths, and lots of original architectural details. It's like the Miami version of a Rosario Candela-designed apartment. Price: $13.9 million.
