Warrington Wolves star Chris Hill has helped teacher-turned-property developer Sarah Corrie-Pearce realise her property dreams with her first major development.
Sarah’ s successful conversion of 119 Columbus Ravine, a large old guesthouse in Scarborough, into three high-spec two-bedroom apartments has required the new developer to overcome many challenges, personal and professional.
Building relationships with property professionals has given Sarah the opportunity to create a network of trusted, professional and experienced contractors including Warrington Wolves star prop Chris Hill who co-runs and owns Warrington-
based Immerse Kitchens and Bathroms.
In working with Chris, Sarah has found a close collaborator for the plumbing, kitchen and bathroom work at 119 Columbus Ravine. In Chris, Sarah has also found a kindred fighting spirit, as the England and Great Britain international got into plumbing
when he left Leigh in 2012 to join Warrington, training two nights a week for three years on a course partly funded by the Rugby League.
“I’ve always had an eye to the future,” says Chris, 33, whose Warrington testimonial match was on March 19th.
“As it’s just one bad tackle and your career’s over.”
Sarah and Chris had an instant rapport after being introduced by her quantity surveyor, Stewart Egan of Egan Quantity Surveying.
Sarah added: “Being introduced to Chris has been the icing on the cake and it’s proved invaluable working with him and his team to enable me to expand the specification and finish whilst working within the budget.”
