While most cities along the base of the San Gabriel Mountains lay claim to being “foothill cities,” Bradbury literally is one. Much of this tiny, affluent city sits in the foothills. It is bordered by Monrovia and Duarte to the west and south, and the city itself sits right below the Angeles National Forest.
Forbes Magazine, in 2010, named Bradbury – which consists of two gated communities, Bradbury Estates and Woodlyn Lane, along with an ungated area—as #1 on their list of the most expensive Zip codes in America. Covering a mere 1.9 square miles and with a population slightly greater than 1,000 residents, the city’s median home price, according to some estimates, is more than $4 million.
The city’s geographic location makes it an ideal spot for hikers, with a variety of trails to explore, including the Big Santa Anita Canyon Loop and Eaton Canyon. The city motto proudly states that the community is committed to “preserving rural tranquility.” Much of the city is equestrian-oriented and maintains open spaces with two- to five-acre minimums.
Duarte Unified School District serves the families of Bradbury, although many prefer to send their children to private schools.
