Property Description
A chance to live in a house which symbolises some of the history of Halifax. The iconic Wainhouse Tower, built by John Edward Wainhouse, lived in Sapling Grove as a young man. This Victorian Mansion, dating back from 1843, was the former home of the Wainhouse family and was divided into two superb semi detached residences.

10 Reasons to Choose Peter David Properties

Again thank you so much for your help, you and all your staff have been brilliant with us, and having dealt with a number of Estate Agents now we know how rare it can be to get service and support like this!

Mr R, Brighouse (prospective tenant, January 2015)

We can not fault the service provided by Peter David Properties and in particular yourself. We feel that you have played a major part in bringing both the sale and purchase together so that it happens this coming Friday the 4th December. We feel that without your intervention last week, we may still be waiting for contracts to be exchanged. So thank you Helen - we appreciate everything you have done to assist us.

Mr & Mrs M, Highroad Well (vendor and buyer, December 2015)

Just to let you know I have rung NPower to close our gas and electric account....... Kind regards and thanks for all your help and assistance over the year, I can honestly say you have been the most efficient and proactive letting agency I have ever rented from and much of that has been to do with you, so thanks!

Mr E, Brighouse (vacating tenant, October 2015)

Thank you for coming today. I just thought I would let you know a little feedback if that's ok?

Both myself and my brother thought you were both extremely professional, polite and full of knowledge (it was also nice to see you had already done some research of cost etc), We were very impressed with your attitudes and your clear passion for what you do and your honesty regarding pricing and value. I look forward to hearing from you regarding solicitors fee's and brochure and will be advising my sister of how impressed I was with your services.

Thanks again

Mrs L, Huddersfield (prospective vendor, January 2016)

We really appreciated all the hard work you put into selling our home. You provided a really professional service. We would highly recommend you all. Many thanks.

M&J, Hebden Bridge (vendor, May 2015)

I should have waited 30 minutes as it is all completed now, so please release the keys. Thanks for your help in making this all happen, it is very much appreciated and so nice to find an agent who is pleasant to work with. If you need a recommendation at any time, please just ask.

Mr K, Rastrick (vendor, October 2015)

We can't thank you enough Helen for your friendly, professional, on-the-ball personality we've had the pleasure of dealing with since April. I remember the first call to arrange a valuation and hearing your broad Yorkshire accent and thinking "hhmm I like Peter David best so far" and you've kept that up since then. We cannot imagine doing all of this without you, I don't think you realise how supportive you've been through a house move, marriage and a sudden loss. You've chased things without me having to ask and just have a way of calming things down when the frustrating days got too much.You were our perfect match to help us get our new home and we can never thank you enough. Peter David Properties have a very special added touch having you on their team and if anyone was to ask if we would recommend I would hand on heart say 100% and I believe that's very rare these days to say. (As you know I'm tough to please!!!!) THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Have a fantastic Christmas, enjoy family time and I shall see you on Facebook!

Mrs C, Wheatley (vendor, December 2014)

Good to know there are 28 pictures on Rightmove. Thanks for your continued professionalism and service in handling this process, we've really appreciated your support.

Mrs J, Hebden Bridge (vendor, May 2015)

One card, two thank you's. Wonderful service. Love and all the best for 2015 and beyond.

D, Sowerby Bridge (vendor, May 2015)

I also wanted to say a big thank you. You have been invaluable in the purchase of Copley Drive. We really appreciate all your efforts to move things forward and keep communications going. It has been a stressful time for us and it helped us greatly to have our questions answer so quickly (solicitors are not always so helpful!). If we ever sell Copley Drive we would absolutely use Peter David Properties and would highly recommend you also. I look forward to putting a face to the voice on Friday when I collect the keys!
