The history of Northwood is one of independence and self-governance. Constructed in the early 1970s, Northwood is the only Irvine community that was developed independently from the Irvine Company. This allowed the formation of distinct neighborhoods, like Park Paseo, Park Place, and Woodside, each with its own homeowners' associations and community amenities, including pools and Jacuzzis.
What makes Northwood truly special is its legacy as part of the Irvine Ranch. Land parcels gifted by the Irvine family to loyal employees eventually became the foundation of this unique village. The majority of Northwood houses were built between 1977 and 1979, making the area a delightful blend of history and modernity. Northwood Pointe, a companion neighborhood to Northwood, was added in the late 1990s, further enriching the community.
