Naremburn home comes with own skate ramp plus a list of other fun features

Fun times ahead – 7 Merrenburn Ave, Naremburn.

There are not too many houses that have skate ramp among their list of features – but 7 Merrenburn Ave, Naremburn is one of them.

Add a big list of other fun stuff like firepit, koi pond, man-cave with loft-style bed, and built-in barbecue, and you have a house you have to see to fully appreciate.

Early sale for Cooper Cronk and Tara Rushton

The four-bedroom home’s auction has been brought forward to this Saturday. It has a price guide of $3.8 million and is marketed by John McManus, of McGrath Willoughby.

He will live-stream the auction from 12.15pm.





The 1920s home was renovated in 2014, and had a kitchen update in 2019. It is on a 715sqm block with 15m frontage and rear access from Dodds St.

The skateboard ramp (top right) at 7 Merrenburn Ave, Naremburn, is a family favourite.

Some of the standout features include a custom-made copper sink, Burmese teak wood bath and vanity, new garage and man-cave with loft-style bed, and DA-approved plans to extend the home even further.

The bathroom.

It is being sold by Mei Soh and her husband, Thai Chau, who work in high-end residential construction, specialising in glazing work.

The man cave has a loft bedroom.

Ms Soh said they looked for a year to find the house.

“Having rear-lane access was non-negotiable,” she said.

We have a boat and being in construction, we have lots of deliveries so the rear lane has been invaluable.”

The kitchen.

They renovated the home for themselves to enjoy, she said.

“We have two sons and with all the surfboards in the man cave and the custom-built skateboard ramp, we look like an extreme-sports family,” Ms Soh said.

The house has four bedrooms.

“All our sons’ friends and plenty of ours, love the ramp; it’s a real focal point along with the firepit and the pond. This house and its big garden have been brilliant during lockdown. “There’s plenty of places to play and yet we’re in the middle of everything here.”

The rear yard.

The family is planning to look for another project once they sell and have their eye on the northern beaches this time.

“The boys spend a lot of time surfing so we’ve decided to do another project together,” Ms Soh said.
