We are not really sure what you can do to improve!
We are very happy with the house and with Skipton Properties who are to be highly recommended. We knew nothing of the company until we chanced upon the development when looking for properties in Silsden. Skipton Properties fulfilled all our requirements and made the purchase as straight forward as possible. We are happy with the build quality and the standard of fixtures and fittings. Your Sales Advisors were really helpful and informative and instrumental in our decision to buy. The Site Manager was a great help prior to the move. Since then we have been well looked after by your Customer Services Manager who has solved some difficulties for us. All in all it has been a good experience and a refreshing change to buy from a builder/developer who really considers quality and customer satisfaction important. We are not really sure what you can do to improve!
Rob & Jo, Harwal Waterside
The overall build quality is excellent
I chose Harwal Mill as I really liked the location together with the unique design. I visited other developments, although the square footage was the same, the apartments were on much larger estates and they felt like boxes. My move went without a glitch. I’ve had every confidence in your company and I came to understand that everything you said you’d do, you do well and on time. Your Sales Advisor, Pam, is really good at her job and very professional. The overall build quality is excellent and the speed at which you got the apartment ready to move to was impressive. I think there should be more properties like this so more people can enjoy living in such a lovely home.
Karen, Harwal Mill
Our experience of dealing with Skipton has been very good
We had looked at apartments in and around Skipton and even made some offers but we were not blown away by any of them. A friend suggested we looked here. I guess what impressed us most was the build quality and location of the development and the high level spec on heating systems, ventilation , soundproofing etc. (Plus the view!) We had not looked at other new builds so had nothing to compare to but looking on the internet only found positive comments. Our experience of dealing with Skipton has been very good and we would like to thank you particularly for all your help and advice during and following the purchase. All the staff we have dealt with have been very helpful, particularly the Site Manager, who has sorted any issues out straight away and has been a pleasure to know.
A homeowner, Harwal Mill
The design is excellent
'We love the spacious open feel of the living and dining room. The open plan layout permits me to cook a meal but still feel I am part of the family. Every room feels spacious and light. The design is excellent with good use of space and light. The views are superb and make me feel happy. My oak and glass banisters are the envy of all my friends and one was so impressed she took pictures and got exactly the same banisters fitted in her house. The underfloor heating is efficient and avoids the need for ugly radiators so the sense of space and light is increased. The whole development feels like a close community and I feel very safe living here alone during the week. The workmen are helpful and kind. Recently my husband dropped his wallet on the pavement outside our house. One of Skipton Properties workmen found it and handed it to me. My husband was delighted as he was about to start cancelling all his cards. We really enjoy living here. Thank you'
Olga, Elsey Croft
We love our new home!
'A big thank you to all of the team at Skipton Properties. From our first visit to the Sales Office to moving into our beautiful home the whole process has been friendly, efficient and professional. We love our new home, from the quality of the fittings to the labour saving devices and the thoughtful touches which transform a house into a home. It is stunning! We have and will continue to recommend Skipton Properties to our friends and anyone thinking of moving house'
John & Claire, Kearns Village
We love our home and feel everything has been built to a really high standard
'We decided on a Skipton Properties house for a number of reasons. We had been looking for a detached home in Skipton. New builds were not something we had considered initially, but when we visited the show home we were impressed by the quality and the amount of space that the homes had. We were also really taken by the Yorkshire stone. The location, with the perimeter houses overlooking the field, was also a real plus. The sales experience was smooth, and we were encouraged by Pam to visit the development as often as we needed to. The completion process and aftercare was particularly impressive. We reported a concern about the grass not taking in our back garden. The affected patches were immediately relayed. The gardens are well thought out and not overlooked, and the landscaping is beautiful. We love our home and feel like everything has been built to a really high standard. We receive a lot of comments about the quality of the tiling in the bathroom and kitchen.'
Sarah, Elsey Croft
The design and finish to our home is of an excellent quality
'We have now been living in our new Skipton property home for 4 months. The house, we have found, is well built and energy friendly. The design and finish to our home is of an excellent quality and the after sales service has been responsive to our needs. Any snags have been quickly corrected by friendly, experienced technicians. Some problems with the overall site have been rectified by the site supervisor, in a prompt and professional way. I would recommend anyone to go and view a Skipton Properties development, as they represent good building practices teamed with quality and affordable homes.'
Our house is great
We cannot fault Skipton Properties in any way. Our house is great, and our sales advisor helped us move into our house in a friendly but highly professional manner. I would definitely recommend Skipton Properties to both friends and family
D Jackson, Woodland Heights
Skipton Properties are a lovely company to deal with.
'I found the buying process quite easy; it was nice having that one person you could speak with. I like that I was able to pick everything in my new home, from floors to tiles. The bedrooms are very well sized and I love the open play layout. I would recommend Skipton Properties to my friends.'
Natalie, Woodland Heights
A massive thank you to your Sales Advisor
'We’d like to say how easy the purchase was made for us by various peoples guidance, from sales staff, site management and mortgage advisors. A massive thank you to your Sales Advisor on the development for holding our hands every step of the way and giving us reassurance to help us reach our goal.'
John and Melissa, Woodland Heights
My favourite part of the house is the lovely kitchen and lounge
'The buying process was made easy by your Sales Advisor and the after sales service was extremely good. My favourite part of the house is the lovely kitchen and the lounge overlooking the garden.'
Jennifer, Jacobs Lane
We would recommend Skipton Properties
'The process of buying a home went smoothly. Everything moved fairly quickly and we were pleased with the sales process. We have a lovely home and could see ourselves here for a long time.'
Mark, Jacobs Lane
A development you should be proud of
The development is looking very good and is one you should be proud of
Ian and Barbara, Jacobs Lane
I found the whole process of buying a home with you really pleasant.
'Your Sales Advisor was very calm, professional, helpful and really went out of her way to try and help me when I had a problem with the valuation of my previous home. What I most like about my home has been the finish and outstanding quality of all the fixtures and fittings for such a reasonably priced property. I also love how peaceful it is here; I wake up to the sound of birds singing, I have a lovely sunny, private garden and everything is well design. I would recommend anyone to look at these houses'
Nicky, Woodland Heights
I’d recommend Skipton Properties without hesitation
The process of buying my new home was a first class experience, with great service throughout, resulting in the purchase of a top quality, value for money home. Your Sales Advisor could not have worked harder or been any more helpful or supportive. I have bought new build homes in the past but I can honestly save that this is the best so far in terms; the quality and finish are excellent.
Dean, Woodland Heights
One of the best decisions we have ever made
'Our house is "home" ready, with wonderful views across fields and undulating hills. The living accommodation is stylish, well fitted out and has plenty of space for family and friends to come and stay. Skipton Properties have been so thorough in the building of our new home, giving opportunities for upgrades if needed to match as closely as possible to individual tastes. Pam Whittaker, the sales advisor, is amazing. She listens and guides you through the whole process of buying your new home - her customer service is second to none! The Site Manager was also very thorough in making sure everything is in order on completion. This was one of the best decisions we have ever made and we are now excited in beginning our new life adventure in our wonderful home in Settle!'
Barry and Sally, Falcon Park
Skipton Properties are well ahead of their competitors
'Our first impressions of Skipton Properties was one of honesty. The quality of the build is very good and we have had many compliments from visitors about the appearance and design of the house and the materials used. We were very well supported through the sales process and never felt under any pressure. Their after sales service is excellent and all members of their team are very professional, courteous and eager to help. Skipton Properties is well ahead of their competitors in terms of build quality. They are small enough to be accessible even at director level but clearly very focused and business like. Also, given the quality and the location I think that our house was very good value.'
Mike, Falcon Park
We would recommend Skipton Properties and give them 10 out of 10
'From the first time of visiting Skipton Properties Sales Office at Falcon Park we were greeted by a very helpful member of your staff who was knowledgeable of the product that she was selling. The properties that we were shown were of a very good standard. We found that it was very easy to personalise our new home, nothing was of too much trouble. From the time that we place our deposit to completion date we were kept updated which made the purchasing of our house stress free. We did visit other developers but found that Skipton Properties were by far the best in all aspects and great value for money. We would certainly recommend Skipton Properties and give them 10 out of 10.'
Margaret, Falcon Park
The house is lovely
'The house is lovely and we are more than pleased. The garden is a revelation. It it has been landscaped beautifully and exactly as we asked.The stones, pebbles and the paths really complement the colour of the stone walls. From the day we paid our first deposit to the day we moved in we have found the customer care to be excellent. Our sales advisor kept us fully informed throughout what could have been a stressful process. On moving in there were only a few minor issues to report and they were rectified very quickly.'
Linda and Graham, Falcon Park
Nothing was too much trouble
'This is our second home from Skipton Properties and we were extremely fortunate to have the same sales advisor, Pam. Her experience and knowledge of the Skipton Properties product and her welcoming style instantly puts you at ease which we greatly appreciated as house moving is not not a stress free moment in your life. Pam’s support throughout the whole sales process was invaluable and nothing was too much trouble for her. Skipton Properties didn’t disappoint, the Branwell house design is spacious and well designed and the quality, style and appearance of materials used (as in our previous house) were impressive and of a high standard. We particularly like the lovely, spacious combined dining room,kitchen and garden room. We call it the family room as that's where we all relax on an evening and at weekends. Enhanced further by the lovely views from the French doors. We were also very pleased at the range and choice of products available to us to personalise our new home; kitchen units,work surfaces, and tiles; we were spoiled for choice. We were also impressed with the landscaped garden; a rockery, privacy fencing and gates and the characterful dry stone wall. This all added to the quality of of our “executive” property. By the fact we have purchased our second home from Skipton Properties it goes without saying that we would recommend Skipton Properties to others. The sales process and the quality and design of our new home would score 10 out of 10.'
Graham and Wendy, Falcon Park
A well designed, quality home
We decided to buy a home at Elsey Croft because of its pleasing appearance, the quality of the design and fixtures and fittings. The location also appealed to us. We feel the dry stone wall and the front landscaping enhances the property. Your sales staff were very impressive and were always on hand to help us with the process of buying our home.
Terry, Joyce and Alexander, Elsey Croft
The external Yorkshire stonework looks fantastic
'We had been looking at houses for around 6 months before my wife found Elsey Croft by chance. We were one of the first to reserve one of your homes off plan. Our homes dimensions are good and the whole estate in general has a nice spacious feel to it, too many modern development sites look and feel a bit boxed in. We are more than happy with the workmanship quality and materials used. The external Yorkshire stonework looks fantastic and all the fittings and the kitchen have been done to a very high standard. Your Sales Advisor was very helpful and informative as to how the whole process would work and how and when things would need to be done. She put us in touch with Manning Stainton who did a fantastic job of getting our mortgage and Help to Buy through, as it wasn’t a straight forward buy (me being self employed). The site workers and management have been very polite, courteous and helpful, I’m aware of the difficulties and challenges of trying to finish a development that people are now living on and I thought the installation of a temporary visitor parking was a nice touch and moving the site offices and site welfare facilities to minimise traffic passing the front of the properties was very good. On dry days they have also sent a site operative out with a hose pipe to minimise dust and dirt on the road. Finally, I must admit I was slightly taken aback at how fast the snagging list was processed and corrected, you have a superb professional service.'
Ryan and Cora, Elsey Croft
A far superior build
We had actually reserved a home with one of Skipton Properties competitors, but it took one look to see that Skipton Properties were a far superior build, the quality shone through and what was included as "extras" in many other developments were standard at Elsey Croft. We have had several friends come to look round and everyone is equally impressed, we have also had some tradesmen, plumbers, electricians and carpenters who have all commented on the quality of the build and the materials used. I would certainly recommend Skipton Properties to anyone and am looking forward to spending a happy retirement in our beautiful new home.
Sue, Elsey Croft
Impressed by the thoughtfulness of design
We decided on Skipton Properties just one year ago having looked at the properties in Settle, but wanting to relocate to Skipton we came and placed a deposit on a ‘Craven’ property before the show house was completed. We were impressed by the thoughtfulness of design and layout, the building materials and the imaginative collection of house types and styles. I am delighted with the choice of fittings for the kitchen and bathroom - I am enjoying the bathrooms particularly. They did exceed what I had dared hope for. Skipton Properties are way ahead of other developers in creating a good community feel to the layout of what is quite a intensive development site. Mel and Pam have been really great, as is John – the leader of the amazing workforce up here. They are always pleasant, polite and despite the weather seem willing to work so very hard. I am not envisaging another house move! Thank you for a lovely home in Skipton.
Liz and Alan, Elsey Croft
I love the house, the space, the light
We decided on a Skipton properties home as we had previously looked at the development in Settle and liked the quality of the specification, particularly the stone used which made it feel less like a"new" house . We also loved the feeling of light and space coupled with a more traditional layout. The quality of fixtures and fittings has exceeded my expectations – I particularly like the concealed bathroom and the wood burning stove. Any snags were picked up and dealt with quickly and with no quibble, even after completion. I love the house, the space, the light and the fact it flows so well, the look of the exterior is really beautiful and I was particularly impressed with the dry stone walls.
Caroline, Elsey Croft
A much better looking house!
Before looking at new build homes we viewed quite a few established properties but all we saw were going to need a lot of work to bring them up to date. We looked at several new build homes in the area, but a Skipton Properties home was a much better looking house, it had a better quality inside, better design and use of space and more choice of flexibility and finish, and of course, we love the location too. Also important to us has been the open discussion we have been able to have with everyone from your Sales Advisors to your After Sales team. The site team are a good bunch of lads too and a credit to the company.
Laurie and Ann, Elsey Croft
