About the neighbourhood
The inner suburb of Merivale is one of Christchurch's premier locations.
Merivale has retained much of the charm and graciousness of the early estates built in the area. There are still many of the narrow streets and lanes and many of the original cottages have been restored. The area is predominantly residential, and is close to the city.
Merivale Village, with a Mall, supermarket, restaurants, boutiques and upmarket shops is a popular destination close to Red Door Cottage.
