Conrad Hilton's Beached Boathouse In The Keys Asks $6.25M

A boathouse purportedly custom build for Conrad Hilton, the famous hotel baron and founder of Hilton Hotels, and Paris' grandpop, is on the market for $6.25 million. The 60 foot 1948 Chris Craft was docked next to the nearby Cheeca Lodge when Hurricane Donna hit in 1960, flinging Hilton's boathouse up onto US 1, from where it was then rolled on telephone poles to this spot. It has also played host to Presidents Truman and Bush Sr. over the years. The boathouse has a main level cabin and bunk beds in what was probably the upper deck bridge, and comes with 5.24 acres of land and an expansive 300 feet of oceanfront beach, which is fabulously rare in the keys.
