Woodbury East: Such a Cool Little Place to Call Home

If you’re looking for an Irvine address that feels a little different from the rest, come discover Woodbury East!

This intimate village in the heart of Irvine hums with an exciting new energy. Homes are designed for easy livability and surrounded by community gathering spaces, inviting residents to spend more time outdoors interacting with their neighbors. Homeshoppers will find that every sidewalk or paseo is a pathway to outdoor enjoyment and lasting friendships.

“One of the best things about Irvine is its diversity of villages, each with its own unique personality and style,” said Suzanne Maddalon, senior director of marketing and research for Irvine Community Development Company LLC, an affiliate of The Irvine Company LLC. “Woodbury East is such a cool little place to call home because it’s designed to promote a relaxed and convenient lifestyle in a friendly, hometown setting.”

Woodbury East offers a “feels like home” ambiance throughout, interweaving the authentic look of Spanish styling with lovely gardens and courtyards. With its beautiful environment, great recreational facilities and a limited number of homes envisioned for the entire village, residents will feel as if they are living in an exclusive club.

Village activities will center around The Palm Club, a 3.45-acre park planned with a community room for special events and private parties. Dedicated to both fun and keeping fit, The Palm Club’s dazzling array of recreational facilities are expected to include a Junior Olympic-sized resort pool, wading pool, spa, fitness room, full-sized basketball court, tennis court, barbecue area, picnic tables, shade structure and a tot lot.

Three neighborhood parks also will help provide additional places to gather and play, offering a three-lane lap pool, wading pool, tot lot, barbecue/picnic areas, play lawns and shade structures.

“Singles, couples and families will find a lot to love about Woodbury East,” said Maddalon. “They will benefit from an intimate, outdoor-oriented village setting, and all the other advantages of living in Irvine will be within easy reach.”

Woodbury East is only moments from major employment centers and the bustling shopping/dining/entertainment destinations of Irvine Spectrum Center® and The Market Place. Woodbury Town Center is located just down the street for convenient shopping, dining and services.

Children who live in Woodbury East will attend schools in the highly acclaimed Irvine Unified School District. For close-to-home educational convenience, Woodbury Elementary School is nearing completion and scheduled to open next month. The University of California Irvine and other destinations for higher education are also nearby.

“Homeshoppers won’t find a more convenient location than Woodbury East,” Maddalon said. “Whether they’re looking to unwind in the fitness center, catch a close-to-home movie and dinner, run errands, or enjoy the great outdoors, everything is an easy walk, bike ride or drive from home. This new village is also very freeway-close, and a Metrolink station is only minutes away.”
