Cashin House set to be visitor gateway to Sungei Buloh reserve

Areas around the Cashin House, near the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, have the potentials for further development, according to an analyst.

The house is uniquely built on a pier, hence nicknamed “The Pier”, located at the coast of Lim Chu Kang.

It is visible from the Lim Chu Kang Jetty, and has a panoramic view of the Johor Strait in the southern state of Malaysia.

Cashin House is set to be a new visitor gateway to the western part of Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve.

Likely to be built before the 1940s, it was occupied by the Japanese in 1942 during the Second World War.

After the war, the Cashin family regained possession of the house.

Under a 2013 draft master plan, it was previously revealed that Cashin House will be restored and converted into a recreational spot.

Mr Nicholas Mak, executive director of SLP International Property Consultants, said: “The authorities can actually consider gradually developing some of the areas around this old Cashin House without actually destroying the natural environment.

“For example, they could open up the grounds for camping or for picnics for families. And hence, bring more attention to this Cashin House and increase its visitorship.”
