KILDARE PROPERTY WATCH: Unique five bed-home and five apartments on market for €995,000

Park View House

Park View House is a multi-unit building of outstanding quality in Blessington, incorporating a five bedroomed family home with three one-bedroom apartments and two two-bedroom apartments.

Developed in 2001 and finished to the highest standard, the house and gardens have been lovingly and meticulously maintained by their current owners Christine and Noel Hughes.

Christine ran a well-known and successful flower shop business from Park View House for many years, winning many awards along the way.

On retirement, she continues flower arranging as a hobby and is a very active member of Naas Flower and Garden Club, Maynooth Flower and Garden Club and the Association of Irish Floral Artists (AOIFA).

Her involvement includes being a judge, a national demonstrator, teacher and speaker, travelling the length and breadth of Ireland and UK. Christine is also a very keen competitor and recently won Gold and Silver Gilt awards at Bloom and Silver Gilt and Bronze at Cork Summer Show.

The sitting room at Park View

In preparation for all these activities Christine uses her studio at Parkview House and plant material from her well stocked garden. The garden initially was planned and laid out by Kay Hartigan (Bsc in horiculture).

Noel’s passion is restoring vintage cars. He helped to set up The Irish Veteran/Vintage Car and Motorbike Club 1985. He was brought up surrounded by engines as his late father Jimmy ran the local garage in the former tram station in Blessington. He has restored numerous cars at his workshop at Park View House.
