5 Concrete Pillar Fence Ideas for Sydney Terrace Homes

By caststone

Terrace homes were built as early as the 1830’s to provide higher density housing for the burgeoning population in cities like Sydney and Melbourne during the Gold Rush era. Terrace housing back then was similar to today’s high-rise apartment blocks with the same high density principles in mind - maximum use of the land, and built side by side with adjoining walls.

These terrace homes today situated in inner city suburbs, come with a proportionate price tag and have all the beauty of focused and detailed workmanship that we have come to love today.

Although traditional fencing was in wrought iron, many terrace houses in Sydney are opting for sandstone concrete pillar fences. They add wonderful street presence and match the grandeur of the era.

When designing a sandstone concrete fence for a Sydney terrace home, there are some elements of the fence that you can customise to make it uniquely your own:

  • The capital – do you want a flat capital or a pointy one?
  • The shaft – how high, do you want a plain shaft or a design etched into it such as a hexagonal, square or arch?
  • The base – the land slope and size will largely determine this but there are some variations with the base in width and trims.
  • The colour – do you want the pillars the same colour as your home or left to age naturally?
  • The infill – timber, wrought iron, brush fence, slats? This will depend on the streetscape and whether you want privacy.

Here are different examples of concrete pillar fences for Sydney terrace homes.

This example shows our larger range of pillars, magnificent and commanding, the 350 series is ideal for terrace homes that are 2 or 3 storey and complement the height of the property very well. They start at 2 metres in height and this particular one has a pointy capital.
