There are many ways to configure the entrance to your home using precast sandstone concrete pillars. Below we have 7 different examples of entrances for traditional and contemporary homes – just to give you a taste of what’s possible!
1. Directly to footpath
Many fences are placed directly on the footpath which maximises landscaping space on the inside of the fence. In these examples, the 250 series of pillars have been used which are grand and stately, with integrated intercoms, security and letterboxes rings.
2. Curved and rounded
3. Pedestrian to door
This home used a section of the footpath to lay a longer path to the front door. The same pavers have been used all the way to the front door, creates a sense of space, size and significantly increasing street appeal.
4. Lighting the way
There was more land available to create this entrance. A longer than usual pathway leads to the front gate. The concrete pillars have integrated lighting, illuminating the walkway.
5. Stepped in
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 – see picture below.
6. 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.
7. Sydney heritage terrace
This Sydney terrace used two 350 series pillars which are the larger of our range. These pillars are in proportion with the substantial height and size of the terrace’s dimensions.
It’s not just about the fence, the entrance makes a big statement too!
