Sophisticated and stylish

The Russley Village speaks volumes when it comes to architectural style. Carefully crafted on the former site of the iconic Russley Hotel, the village has been built with individual character in mind. It comprises a mix of traditional villas, terraced houses and apartments all set within generous grounds cleverly landscaped to provide subtle connections between each of the residential areas.


Variety is the spice of life

Variety is the spice of life

Whatever your interests, there's always plenty to do at The Russley Village.  Choose from a range of organised social activities - from line dancing to mahjong and from bridge club to movie night in our purpose built Cinema.  Meet like-minded residents for a barista made coffee or meal at Abode Café & Brasserie or simply enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this exquisite locale.

Setting new standards for retirement village living in Christchurch

Our residents are proud to call The Russley Village ‘home’. Quintessentially Cantabrian, featuring white picket fences and rose gardens, the village radiates an ‘English country’ air. Add in the meandering pathways peppered with bench seats, pergolas and sculptures and you’ll be forgiven for thinking you’re living on a country estate.

Add to this the fact that The Russley Village is conveniently located for the North-West suburbs, Fendalton and Avonhead Shopping Centres, the airport and Christchurch city centre, and you may well ask yourself ‘what more could I want’.

The Russley Village sets a new standard for retirement villages – in terms of physical design, architectural individuality, social variety and quality of care.

You’ll feel right at home here within this gentile, independent and ‘young at heart’ community.

The place to be

In Russley Village’s warm and inclusive community there’s always something happening. The impressive new Homestead is purpose built for the village’s residents. A boutique cinema experience awaits with tiered seating, along with the Abode Café & Brasserie providing café style fare and dining for residents and village guests, the Lancaster Lounge provides a more intimate lounge bar setting where you can sit and relax by the fire or enjoy a game of cue sports on either of the pool or snooker tables available. The amenity doesn’t end there - there is a library, study and computer area, an arts and crafts space, hair salon and two wellness rooms.  The Homestead replaces the smaller Pavilion as the village’s main hub.  The Pavilion is located adjacent to the four-lane outdoor bowling green and provides another wonderful gathering place for residents to enjoy.

The final piece of resident leisure facilities – the indoor heated swimming pool and spa complex is currently under construction and will further complement the range of facilities at the village.  

The last phase of Russley’s journey will include an upscale boutique care facility and serviced apartments ensuring the full range of care and support services are provided for within the village.

An independent future

Life at The Russley Village is all about choice – freedom and independence, while still having the peace of mind over your safety and security. It’s the best of independent living, with none of the hassle.
