"A jewel in the Crown of Brunswick"

Evans St, wedged between the bustling strips of Sydney Road and Lygon Street, offers an oasis of calm in an otherwise booming part of the city.

A few minutes walk in any direction and the wonderful amenities of the suburb unfold before your eyes.

Parks, cafes and bars are all a stone's throw from this location, offering something for everyone.

Next to no traffic, friendly neighbors and a legacy of council planning with one eye on the heritage inheritance of the future generations demand a big 'thumbs up' from me.

What a wonderful place.

"Great quiet street, so close to everything"

Excellent position, absolutely everything is walking distance (cafes, shops, bars, medical services, public transport, schools, childcare, parks, gym, etc)
Previously lived in Richmond and Southbank, and have found the great array of quality restaurants and nightspots near Evans St far exceeded my expectations.
Neighbours are great, very helpful and friendly
Only issue is the width of the street, and parking. There is only room for one car to pass between parked cars, and you sometimes find yourself having to park outside a neighbours house. That said, it is very quiet with almost no through traffic.

  • Close to everything

"Excellent position, narrow street"

Narrow street in good area poses some problems. Parking often an issue, and driving visibility limited. More townhouses and flats and fewer houses is the trend. Property prices excellent with recent property boom. Nearby small park for toddlers would be so much better with the larger part properly fenced off, at present only part of it is enclosed. Would also be better place for older children to play if this were the case.
