Darag Burke refers to the six clean and tidy townhouses that sit in a corner of his bold. Stockport Street
Until now, he had no idea that the new buildings had anything to do with the England team. Leave one of their star players.
In fact, Williamson Gardens was bought by Manchester City Star and England Heroes Raheem Sterling, 26, and his fianc Pigeon Millian, 24, two years ago.
The couple began a new career in 2019 as property developers. Launching Million Property.
His first project was a series of six modern two-bed townhouses in Stockport’s Red Dash.
At the time, Pige told his Instagram followers: “After months of studying real estate development, I qualified to become a property developer in 2018.
We then started looking for properties to augment our portfolio and managed to buy six new homes.
“As a director Embed Tweet I am now pleased to announce that we have finally completed our first plan for six new, two-bedroom houses in red.
Tagging Rahim in his announcement, he added: “We plan to add more projects to our portfolio in the future.”
As a big football fan, Darag – who lives in an anti-development platform – says he’s always wondered if there were six modern-looking, new houses in the middle of a road lined with red brick roofs. Why were built.
The 24-year-old Liverpool FC fan was interested in getting information about the former Liverpool player’s contact with the Sterling area.
“I remember when I moved here they were something extraordinary,” he says.
“We left in April. One of the reasons we’re moving to this area is because of the money.
He adds: “Knowing that he owns it gives me the context of what he is and where he came from.”
Darag says it feels good to see footballers investing their money in worthwhile projects.
“People like Sterling and Marcus Rashford are really good for the game,” he says.
“For a long time, footballers have been given this recognition, which is very true and they have said ‘don’t comment too much’.
“Footballers know a lot now.”
Every house in Williamson Garden is currently occupied by tenants.
The modern, white and gray townhouses have two bedrooms, a ground floor heating and a communal garden with private views.
One couple – who asked not to be named – have been living here for eleven months and say it’s ‘cute’.
“We didn’t know about sterling until we actually moved,” he said.
“I don’t know anything about football so we don’t really think about it.
“We never saw him, but I think his partner used to come and check everything.
“People need care and maintenance of the gardens,” he said. And if we have a problem, they respond. We like the modern look of houses.
“Everyone is really good. Neighbors bring us broken ones. It’s very peaceful
“And the fact is, it’s really good.”
Although the pair are not football fans, they say friends know where they live and link to the city.
“We were watching the match the other day and my friend said: ‘Your landlord has scored.’
Another neighbor on the road says he has more rugby fans but admits that being associated with a national sports hero is ‘cool’.
“These houses are good and new and they look different,” she says.
“That’s why I wanted to stay here.
“Sometimes people just stop and stare at them.”
When the homes were first sold by Space4Living – 50 750 a month – they were told that “an exciting new development of 6 luxury Mayon style homes to be found after a strong rent-seeking location.” “
The statement added: “This amazing collection of new homes will give you a unique opportunity to be part of a growing community in high-end housing, yet stay affordable.
“It is close to Manchester City Center and close transport links to help ensure that Williamson Gardens is ready to promote positively developed growth both internally and externally as part of the community. Is.”
The property site was previously occupied by a trademark business, before six residential properties were turned into a family home by fiber architects and demolished by Millian Property.
