In the intimate Irvine village of Woodbury East, small is very big with homebuyers who want a place to call their own!
Here the parks and gardens will be like relaxing outdoor living rooms that make you feel at home, and park benches are as familiar as your old sofa – just right for a friendly chat. Paseos and sidewalks are the inviting corridors that lead you where you want to go, then back again to your front door.
“Woodbury East is new and energetic and exciting on a very intimate scale,” said Suzanne Maddalon, senior director of marketing and research for Irvine Community Development Company LLC, an affiliate of The Irvine Company LLC. “There’s a close-knit quality about this environmentally conscious village, the first to be considered ‘green-certified’ by the City of Irvine, that makes people want to be a part of its indoor/outdoor lifestyle.”
Perfect for singles, couples and families, recreation and socializing are an integral part of the village design at Woodbury East, beginning with the residents-only Palm Club. This beautiful gathering place planned for the heart of the community will offer nearly three and one-half acres of relaxation and recreation in a charming landscaped environment.
The Palm Club facilities are expected to include a Junior Olympic-sized resort pool, a wading pool, spa, full basketball court, tennis court, fitness room, tot lot, picnic tables, barbecue area, and shade structure. A spacious recreation building with multipurpose room and kitchen will be the scene of community events and private celebrations alike.
“The Palm Club will be the place where Woodbury East residents go to unwind, hang out and have fun,” Maddalon said. “Like the overall village, the Club will have an intimate feel – very welcoming and comfortable.”
Smaller gathering places will be scattered throughout the community, including Jasmine Park with its three-lane lap pool, wading pool, tot lot, picnic tables, barbecues, and shade structure. Iris Garden will feature a half basketball court, picnic tables, shade structure, and lawn area, and Rose Petal Garden will invite residents to stop and smell the roses as they enjoy a large play lawn, picnic tables and shade structures.
Added Maddalon: “Woodbury East homebuyers are anticipating a fun and neighborly lifestyle. All the different park and garden spaces will provide residents with a wealth of choices for both active and quiet time outdoors. Whether they’re looking to work out, shoot hoops, have a picnic, or curl up with a good book, Woodbury East is the place to be.”
Woodbury Town Center is located just down the street for close-to-home shopping, dining, banking, medical and other services. With all these conveniences an easy walk or bike ride away, Woodbury East residents won’t need to venture far from home for their everyday needs.
Envisioned with approximately 617 homes, Woodbury East is the City of Irvine’s first community in which each home is green-certified under City guidelines. These guidelines are designed not just to protect the natural environment – encouraging water and energy conservation, waste reduction, recycling, and better air quality – but also to help improve the quality of life for those who will live, work and play in the neighborhoods of Woodbury East.
Homes are currently selling in John Laing Homes’ Celadon neighborhood, ideally located across the street from The Palm Club. This dynamic collection of two- and three-story attached townhomes reflects Santa Barbara, Monterey and Spanish Colonial architecture in its four different building types.

Along with various energy-saving green components, Celadon boasts an impressive array of price-included amenities that consist of handsome gas fireplaces with precast surrounds, ceramic tile countertops in kitchens and master baths, white Thermafoil kitchen cabinets, a built-in microwave oven, Category 5 voice and data prewiring in the bedrooms, media niche and living room, and digitally controlled heating and air conditioning.
