Hardys Tintara Winery is right on the main street in McLaren Vale and this heritage property dates back to 1878. It became one of the region’s best wine cellars when Thomas Hardy transformed an old flour mill into a cellar door, promoting the local wine and supporting the township of McLaren Vale to prosper and grow.
This beautiful heritage property needed a street facing fence complementary to its historic roots and in keeping with the building itself.
Meeting the standards of handcrafted beauty from yesteryear
Authenticity was important, and a stone mason was commissioned to create a stone wall at the entrance, with leftover stone blocks from buildings on the site. CastStone provided the supporting stone concrete pillars and iron infills .
The pillars that we installed were the 350 Series which are suited for large properties – grand old homes, wineries, and country properties. They have also been installed in many Victorian Terraces in Sydney, which need size and width to balance their street presence.
These sizeable sandstone concrete pillars matched the historical era of the building and were large enough to create a stately entrance.
The 350 Stone Concrete Pillars Series have the following features:
• They start from 2m in height, so they are larger than our other ranges
• They suit terrace homes, villas, Edwardian homes, bungalows, large estates, community buildings and commercial properties
• They are customisable – you can change the caps, shaft and bases to create a custom style
• They work with many fencing infill styles - solid walls, tubular steel, cast aluminium, brush or timber slats and in this case, a stunning handcrafted stone fence.
The pillars were painted to exactly match the rest of the property. Sandstone concrete pillars can be left to age naturally, giving them a rustic look over time that blends with the elements of the environment they are in, or they can be painted to match the property.
