The Legacy We Live
Oakwoods is a new collection of heritage-inspired residences surrounded by manicured, European-style gardens. Developed by Aragon Properties, it consists of three 6-storey condominium mid-rises and six 3-storey gabled townhomes that reflect the Edwardian architecture of the property’s renovated English Inn. The 1906-built structure will include a new restaurant, lounge, spa, and event space. This 4.3-acre site retains many mature trees, including a Garry Oak meadow. Lush landscaping will include pathways that connect a rain garden with a boardwalk, a sunken garden, wedding garden, and a quadrangle lawn. Oakwoods will set a benchmark of sustainable, community-sensitive design that celebrates and compliments the English Inn.
Esquimalt is a great place to walk and bike. Just minutes from the seaside, enjoy sunny picnics or stunning Salish Sea sunsets at MacAulay Point and Saxe Point parks. For all-weather recreation, nearby Esquimalt Recreation Centre features an indoor pool, gym, weight room. sauna, and steam room. Next door, Archie Browning Sports Centre has an ice arena and a 6-sheet curling rink. Between the two, Bullen Park sports three baseball diamonds and hosts the annual Esquimalt Ribfest. All of your day-to-day shopping needs can be found at Esquimalt Plaza with a Country Grocer, Esquimalt Bake Shop, Liquor Express, and Great Canadian Dollar Store. For dining, events, and festivals in downtown Victoria, it’s only a 6-minute drive away. Alternatively, cycle the E&N Rail Trail or hop on the Victoria Harbour Ferry at West Bay Marina.
