LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE BRICK PROJECTS
The vistas visible from the city of La Cañada Flintridge are stunning. Situated in the foothills and flanked by the San Gabriel Mountains, the Angeles National Forest and the San Rafael Hills, one can look in any direction and be treated with an amazing view. In keeping with the surrounding beauty, the homes in this town are equally lovely. Between the unbeatable location and the fact that the sun shines seventy-five percent of the time, locals find themselves spending a lot of time out of doors. When designing an outdoor living space, there are many materials to choose from, but one of the most popular is the classic elegance of brick.
Practically next door in Pasadena, Boston Brick and Stone is one of the most highly regarded home restoration and repair companies in the business, and they have expert brick masons on staff. In fact, regardless of the hardscape material a homeowner chooses, the licensed, experienced contractors at BBS are capable of turning a simple yard into a showpiece. Spice up your outdoor space with eye-catching features such as a patio covered with brick paving, an outdoor fireplace for cozy evenings or perhaps a brick driveway to enhance the front view of the home.
THE CITY OF LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE
Up until thirty-seven years ago, the area now known as La Cañada Flintridge was actually two separate communities. Rancho La Cañada, settled during the Spanish and Mexican eras, and Flintridge, named after United States Senator Frank P. Flint, decided to merge in 1976. Interestingly, the lack of a hyphen in the town's name is deliberate; a symbolic attempt at demonstrating complete unity between the two communities.
Today the area has come to be one of the most sought after places to live in L.A. County. Above the smog, the city ranges in altitude from 960 to 2,400 feet above sea level. The architecture also reflects the variance of landscape and pride of ownership is evident. Whether local residents are looking to add a feature to their home or restore one to its original beauty, the staff at Boston Brick and Stone has the tools and expertise to help.
