Whether traditional or contemporary, CastStone’s precast sandstone concrete pillars are sure to make an eye-catching statement in every space.
A well-planned and chosen fence does much more than just create a boundary, it changes your home’s street appeal and how it is perceived by your visitors.
There are many ways to configure the entrance to a home using CastStone precast sandstone concrete pillars. Below are different examples of entrances for traditional and contemporary homes:
Curved, rounded and sweeping
This can be done with either pedestrian entrance gates or drive way gates (as seen in the above photo) – safely tucks cars off the road when entering while glamorising the entrance
Pedestrian path to door
This home used CastStone Pillars to mimic the front façade of the home with pavers leading from the gate all the way to the front door, creates a sense of space, size and significantly increasing street presence.
Lighting the way
Concrete pillars can have integrated lighting or solar lighting added, illuminating the walkways, house numbers and Intercoms.
Entrances can be stepped in to create a designated area outside the home. The home’s street presence improves and it looks fabulous! If you have a corner block, you can carve out what might otherwise be an unused corner of the garden, to create a lovely corner entrance. A set back entrance can also double as the sliding gate recess bay to accommodate the gate track on small frontages. This entry style works well with contemporary house designs and traditional – old or new builds.
Simple, modern, open
This entrance is simple, open and straight forward. Modern short pillars have been combined with quoins and an integrated letterbox with a pathway leading straight to the front porch.
Using slope to advantage
This fence has stepped foundations, so working with the slope the entrance was made grand by the deliberate spacing of the pillars to create a wider way than the gate width.
Designating a drive way
An Adelaide hills horse stud used CastStone Pillars to create road presence giving the entrance to the driveway grandeur and definition. CastStone sandstone concrete pillars have been used in many applications as standalone posts.
A Bakery in the Barossa Valley extended their dining area to the outdoors with a precast concrete pillar fence. Now patrons can enjoy their wonderful food while sitting outside in the sunshine and watching passers-by. They also added black corners to the bases for practical reasons, to camouflage dings and chips from prams and general traffic. But they also brought the black trim into the pillar shaft itself to make it more uniform. CastStone designed the address plate, with the logo on one of the entrance pillars and the bakery name on the other. CastStone also helped to design a fence that would suit the historical streetscape of the Barossa Vally while enhancing the bakery’s street presence, creating a valuable commercial space.
Creating a beautiful entrance can also be about the inside of garden…look at the path way lined with roses. CastStone pillars create a formal back drop to the rose lined path. Many fences are placed directly on the footpath which maximises landscaping space on the inside of the fence.
It’s not just about the fence; the entrance makes a big statement too! A well-planned fence adds value to your home and increases resale, the right fence adds street presence and increases the value of your home, so investing in this is a wise use of your budget.
