With strong ties to Ngāi Tahu, and steeped in a rich agricultural history, Lincoln welcomes Te Whāriki – a subdivision with a difference.
Only minutes from the city, yet a world away from the hustle and bustle, Lincoln is home to a development that is fast becoming a thriving community in its own right.
A joint venture established between Lincoln University and Ngāi Tahu Property, Te Whāriki offers all the benefits that come with living in a rural community with the added convenience of modern amenities within a short distance.
With a number of successful developments already established in and around Christchurch, such as Wigram Skies, Prestons, Tamara Park and Linden Grove, Te Whāriki is another lifestyle development for Ngāi Tahu Property.
Invested in future generations, Ngāi Tahu Property is committed to developing a high level of engagement between Te Whāriki and the wider community in Lincoln, and provides ongoing upkeep of shared spaces and services to keep them looking beautiful for years to come.
Having established close connections with Lincoln’s finest retailers and restaurants, such as The Pantry and The Laboratory, all the amenities of the Lincoln village are close by.

With schools nearby and a new preschool proposed for 2019, it is the ideal environment to raise a family.
Lincoln will never be as densely populated as some towns within the area due to its established farming roots. This is great news for residents who love the peaceful existence Lincoln offers.
Dotted with green spaces, a number of safe, user-friendly walkways and cycleways wind their ways around and across ponds, and lead to the nearby university campus. Surrounded by flourishing native flora and fauna, the deliberate choice of plantings now attracts wild geese, native birds and butterflies to the area and creates a beautiful outlook for residents.
Although all homes built within Te Whāriki must adhere to covenants and design guidelines to ensure the quality of the subdivision as a whole and help retain investment value, the wide range of architectural styles already here are as diverse as their residents.
