When you choose The Russley Village, you choose a lifestyle

Welcome to one of Christchurch’s finest residential villages

If you’re after the best of both worlds with an added touch of class, then you’ll be well suited to The Russley Village. Set in beautifully maintained park-like grounds, the village has been designed so you can enjoy your own space and independence yet be secure in the knowledge that there’s company around every corner and extra care and support on site should you require it.

You’ll find meeting points throughout the village. Bench seats in the gardens, connecting pathways and mail boxes in the communal pergolas all provide opportunities to say ‘hello’ to your neighbours. And you’ll find our management team on hand 24 hours a day. 

Sophisticated and stylish

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

You’ll feel uplifted by the beauty of this village. And we know you’ll enjoy the spaciousness, individuality and high quality finish of our villas, terraced houses and apartments.

Luxury living

Our range of homes are all perfectly placed so you can easily access all four corners of the village. Radiating from the bowling green, the Pavilion, and the Russley Homestead – the village’s social centre – our contemporary villas, terraced houses and apartments have instant exterior and interior appeal. 

Thoughtfully designed with your comfort and safety in mind, by award-winning architects Sumich Chaplin, all of The Russley Village’s residences are spacious and feature stylish open plan living, generous private outdoor areas, double glazing and a heat pump to keep you warm on winter nights. 


Each of our new apartments contain a custom designed kitchen, with quality appliances including an electric hob, wall mounted oven and concealed range hood. Full height cabinetry provides additional storage, while composite bench tops, tile splash back and tile flooring complete the sophisticated elegance.  In the European style laundry you’ll find your own front loading washing machine, clothes dryer and wash tub.
