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.

10 Reasons to Choose Peter David Properties

Just wanted to say thanks for all that you and your team have done over the last few months. I have been very pleased with the service I Have received from Peter David. Thanks again.

Mr A, Todmorden (vendor, November 2015)

I have been extremely fortunate enough to deal with Sherrie and the team at the town centre branch now for just over three years.
Having already used *********** in the past where i had a pretty appaling experience i was always going to be apprehensive using another agent.
With my time with Peter David, they have provided me an excellent and trustworthy service. Always found me great tenants which have proved to be exactly what i required. I have enjoyed working with them all and without them i don't think it would have been possible to carry on as a landlord.
The only reason i am leaving their service is because a family member is taking over the house now.

A truely substantial and thorough service they offer and personally worth every single penny. I have never felt any doubt or stress while they have dealt with my house and tenants. Thank you so much for the past few years guys, i couldn't recommend them enough to anyone who are looking for a managed tenancy company. Fantastic!!!

Mr T, Halifax (landlord, September 2015)

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 couldn't fault you even if I wanted to. Excellent service from start to finish from Matt, Liz and Vicky. You know how to deal with people as well as houses. You made me feel secure, kept me in the loop at all times and delivered what you said you would. Thank you.

Mrs A, Hebden Bridge (vendor now living in Bristol, November 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)

We found Sally to be very efficient and courteous on her visit to us on Tuesday. She came back to us with some information for us as promised. very impressed. We will probably sell our property through Peter David when we are ready to go to market.' Mr & Mrs K, Brighouse (potential vendors, August 2015)
'Many thanks for selling our house.You have done a brilliant job and communicated very well throughout. I will definately recommend your firm and most certainly use your firm again.

S & D, Sowerby (vendors, August 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!

Mrs H, Copley (buyer, October 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)

I just wanted to say thank you for all your help with the sale of our house. I really appreciate that you were always on the end of the phone, chasing people up on our behalf and keeping the lines of communication open between us and our buyers. This made the process much easier for us being so far away - so THANK YOU!

Mr & Mrs B, Sowerby Bridge (vendors, July 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!
