Repairs made on a Heritage Sydney Sandstone Front Fence. 20 years old and still looking great!
Faraday Avenue, Rose Bay is one of Sydney’s best looking streets. Closely situated to the city, the eastern suburbs has so many beautiful stone features. With a combination of stone from Balmain, Drummoyne and Gosford (Mount White), the stone blends well with it’s neutral tones.
The front fence as featured above took two months to complete. This had occured after six months after the rear fence and pool surrounds, pictured below, were completed.
The owners had such a beautiful house that magazines would regularly utilise their premises. The wall pictured below was used in a Freedom Furniture advert at that time.
The above limestone is from WA. The important thing to remember when working with soft types of limestone such as this is to reinforce any overhead arch to provide extra support. The neutral colours of the stone facade and fence balance well with strong blacks or dark greys.
