Re: Hose Bib flange?
I would be inclined to fasten a decorative plate over the existing hole in the masonry and drill a hole just large enough for the pipe to fit through. The decorative plate will give you a place to attach the hose bib flange to if necessary.
Where would you get the decorative plate? Anywhere that you can find something suitable. I tend to go to my sheet metal supplier for this type of thing, but you can find sheet good metals at any hardware store or big box store. I would recommend using a non-ferrous metal that won't rust.
Copper will take on a green patina with age.
Stainless steel will remain kind of shiny.
Brass will take on a bronze color patina
Aluminum will always be gray
