Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

THIS prop­erty in Ripon has the X-Fac­tor at least by as­so­ci­a­tion.

James Heron, the owner of 4 Lark Hill Close, runs Green Hippo, which sup­plies scenic video equip­ment to the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try.

The mar­ket­ing arm of his com­pany is still based in Ripon.

He says: “When we first set up the com­pany, it was me in a tiny Ripon in­dus­trial unit, build­ing two or three sys­tems a month while my busi­ness part­ner beavered away in a London flat writ­ing the soft­ware. Since then, things have re­ally taken off.”

James now has 18 staff and sup­plies equip­ment to a host of Satur­day night tele­vi­sion pro­grammes such as X-Fac­tor and Danc­ing on Ice, as well as West End and Broad­way the­atre and arena live mu­sic tours by Take That and Ge­orge Michael.

He is sell­ing his Ripon home to down­size to Har­ro­gate.

His house has five bed­rooms, am­ple park­ing, stor­age space and a gar­den com­plete with Koi pond and is five min­utes walk from Ripon’s ac­claimed schools.

The prop­erty is on the mar­ket for £320,000 with Bead­nall Co­p­ley. Tel: 01765 698100 www. bead­nall­cop­ley.co.uk
