If you are looking for a home in the heart of Canberra with plenty of space around you to enjoy a well connected lifestyle, The Oaks in Woden is a must-see.

A collection of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, The Oaks is defined by light, space and elegant simplicity. Thoughtfully designed around a village green, the residences are positioned to enjoy views of its leafy surrounds, with easy connections to all of Canberra.

 

With Woden undergoing a transformation, The Oaks will soon become a coveted address within a vibrant new lifestyle precinct – a place to watch the seasons change as Woden continues to flourish.

As the geographical heart of Canberra, Woden is connected to an expanding array of dining and shopping options as well as sprawling parklands and arterial roads. Woden Westfield is home to everything from fresh food to cinemas, and the charming cafes in suburbs Curtin, Yarralumla and Deakin are only minutes away.

For time outdoors, residents can head to the local mountain ranges of Mount Stromlo, Mount Taylor, Black Mountain or Red Hill for a walk or ride.

Amalgamated Property Group development manager Michael D’Elboux says something that really sets The Oaks precinct apart from the rest is the emphasis on green space.

“Both Arbour and Crown (precincts at The Oaks) have a large landscaped village green for residents to enjoy as well as a gym and their own lap pools so there’s plenty of opportunities to get outside for fresh air or exercise without straying too far from home,” he says.

Each home within The Oaks has been designed to establish a meaningful connection with nature. Expanses of glass invite views and sunlight into the residence, creating a feeling of airiness and energy. Intelligent storage, quality fixtures and beautiful design ensures the homes are both sophisticated and highly liveable.

“We’ve paid close attention to the floorplan designs here to get the right mix of options for the right mix of buyers,” says Michael. “For example, we minimise wasted space by reducing hallways where possible and have worked with the intention of maximising natural light throughout the homes.”


Expansive lounge and kitchen areas are designed to balance form with functionality. A generous island bench provides residents with space to socialise while preparing a meal, and large living areas ensure there is room for everyone to relax in comfort.

Floor-to-ceiling windows in the bedrooms frame ever-changing vistas, a living work of art to be enjoyed from the comfort of your own bed. Spacious balconies open to uninterrupted views of Black Mountain or The Oaks’ village green. All idyllic spaces feature areas to sit back with a glass of wine and watch the seasons change.

“Oaks Crown is really going to enjoy some of the best views of Woden Valley,” says Michael. “Because of its position, many of the homes will have an uninterrupted view towards the mature greenery of Woden Valley, the mountain ranges, Black Mountain Tower and beyond. But it’s still so close to Woden Town Centre and the main arterial roads to make life easy.”

Amalgamated Property Group has also just launched a new two-bedroom display home on the ground floor of the recently topped out 16-level tower. It provides a great opportunity to experience the finished product.

A private wellness building at the entrance to The Oaks houses a contemporary gym, providing residents with a convenient space to enjoy their daily fitness routine. A series of landscaped spaces – including lawns, terraces, barbecue areas, plazas and intimate seating nooks – provide residents with places to connect with nature and each other.

Michael says buyers will have added peace of mind knowing the team behind this development is award winning.

“I think that really helps those who may be unsure about buying off the plan,” he says. “Milin Builders, who are building The Oaks, also built our Ivy complex next door, which last year won its category in the 2020 Master Builders ACT and Asset Construction Hire Excellence Awards – that’s something we’re very proud of.”

The two-bedroom display apartment at 11 Irving Street, Phillip, is now open Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm, and midweek at set times (check The Oaks website for details).
