Forbes: Homes in Unusual Places

Stiltsville Houses, Key Biscayne, Florida

Sure, there are awesome mansions and amazing waterfront properties on Key Biscayne, once home to President Richard Nixon’s winter White House. But to live in a home with wraparound porches smack in the turquoise waters, trade the glitz for Stiltsville, a neighborhood of wood stilt houses about 10 feet above the shallow water on the edge of Biscayne Bay in Biscayne National Park. In the 1940s and 1950s, Stiltsville was a Miami hotspot, with social clubs among the original 27 cabins. Hurricanes have taken their toll: only seven houses remain.
