Situated only 10 minutes from Ashburton, and 80 kms from Christchurch, The Village Green has everything you need for easy, healthy, stress-free living. Ashburton is large enough that it has many of the major chain-stores but small enough that it has boutique shops, speciality stores plus unique local cafes, restaurants and bars.
The Lake was initially designed to provide an aquatic recreational resource for the people of mid-Canterbury. The Lake Hood Extension Project will add more than 1,100 additional acres to the reserve. In particular, the lake’s area will be doubled, with planned beaches, canals and islands; dedicated water-sports areas; walking and riding trails and public promenades.
Numerous play and activity areas promote neighbourhood spirit and provide a safe environment for children to explore as they grow, with the added convenience of a bus route for nearby schools, the young residents are well catered for.
The Village Green offers you the freedom of a semi-rural lifestyle with the community values of a local neighbourhood. So, if the idea of strolling down to the Lake House for a coffee, or cocktail appeals to you, this is your location.
