Brunswick, an eclectic, multicultural arts hotspot where diversity is celebrated, is now the home of the latest sustainable apartment development. Breese Street by Milieu presents a combination of visually stunning homes with environmentally-friendly inclusions, in a prime site near major transport links like Anstey station.
As a resident of this new project, everything you need will be at your doorstep. If you like to exercise in the morning, the lap pools and indoor heated swimming pools at the Brunswick Baths are only a walk or bike ride away. Afterwards, there are a number of places where you can refuel with a coffee and bite to eat. If you head down Sydney Road, you’ll pass by Maddox Café, Foxtrot Charlie, or Small Axe Kitchen — all of which offer delicious breakfast menus and premium coffee.
Have the day off? Spend time exploring your new suburb. Savvy locals frequent the op-shop Savers, where you can find quality recycled clothes, homewares, books, and even kids toys. Otherwise, it’s worth spending time investigating the other shops along Sydney Road. Princess Polly, Pantheon Music, Treetop Toy Shop — there’s a variety of different wares on offer, and you never know what you might find on this iconic Brunswick main street.
If you’re not much of a shopper, visit the Counihan Gallery at the Brunswick Town Hall. Run by Moreland City Council, the gallery showcases innovative and diverse visual artists throughout the year. The space also hosts workshops and forums, as well as session and panel discussions. Around the corner, Brunswick Library runs book groups and computer and technology classes for the community.
On weekends, branch out and experience what’s on offer in the neighbouring suburbs. CERES Community Environment Park, in Brunswick East, is only a short car or bike ride away. The onsite café is a great place for brunch, while the Organic Grocer is a fantastic place to pick up your fruit and vegetables for the week ahead. Plus, every second Saturday there is a Makers and Flea Market where attendees can find beautiful handmade eco-friendly goods.
For a night out, choose one of the many restaurants scattered along Sydney Road. Order a hearty pub meal with a modern twist at the dog-friendly Edinburgh Castle Hotel or, if you feel like something a bit different, nearby Lebanese and Turkish restaurants offer plenty of choice. Enjoy platters of Pilaki, Babaganush and lamb or chicken Kofte at Alaysa, or try out the range of salads and felafels at local favourite Very Good Felafel.
After you’ve eaten, enjoy a nightcap at one of the local boutique bars. Biff Tannin’s offers a range of fine wines and unique international whiskies in an intimate setting. Meanwhile, African-inspired Bar Oussou has a line-up of local and international artists performing throughout the week.
With so many dining, retail and entertainment options available within walking distance of your new home at Breese Street by Milieu, you’ll love living in Brunswick.
