We dream your dream home

For thirty years Sainte Adresse’s developer, Scimitar Homes, has been creating bespoke and breath-taking homes. Specialising in ultra-modern homes, Scimitar ensures each one is of the highest standard, full of futuristic charm. The award-winning developers have built a reliable reputation over the decades and people across south Wales entrust them to create the home of their dreams.

Scimitar founder John Shields, who was inspired to start the business by his architect father, says: “Individuals and businesses choose us for our reputation. They trust us to deliver the home they’ve dreamt of – and that’s a big responsibility!

“We embrace novel design briefs – the bigger and quirkier the better! We think outside the box and use our expert knowledge to realise the client’s vision and bring it to life. We work together at every stage of the design, planning and build to ensure a happy customer at the end of the journey, living in a happy home.”

Scimitar focusses on residential properties and counts Sainte Adresse among its finest developments. A similar development which they worked alongside Loyn & Co Architects on, was Conway Mews. Consisting of eight modern two bed townhouses, the stylish development is located in the heart of the trendy suburb, Pontcanna. The development is as stunning from the outside as it is inside with a contemporary brick façade in keeping with local architecture. Each property has adjoining parking and gardens and the street is lined with trees adding to its leafy suburban feel.

Inside, the mews style homes were finished to the highest spec and incorporated the quality standards that Scimitar homes have built their reputation.

On the other side of Cardiff in the exclusive area of Cycoed, Scimitar again worked with Loyn & Co Architects, this time on a four dwelling development known as Nant Fawr Court. Set within a secluded site surrounded by mature woodlands and the nearby Nant Fawr stream, the final development is a spectacle that both blends in with its location and demands attention simultaneously. Space and light are in abundance in these exquisite homes in a sought-after area of the city.
 
John said: “We put all our creativity and expertise together to come up with builds that are both practical as well as out-of-this-world. We want to create somewhere where people can live day in, day out, but that makes them go ‘wow’ every time they get home.”
