Document Description
The project is a request for a use permit, variation from standards for lot coverage, and design review approval. Currently, the site is 19.34 (gross) acres with an average slope of approximately 26%. The site contains a two-story home, detached garage, swimming pool, equestrian structures and surfaces, and other surfaces used for site circulation for a total of 47,691 s.f. of existing lot coverage. The applicant would deconstruct the existing 3,790 s.f. home, 2,835 s.f. barn, horse corral, and swimming pool, but retain the existing 1,620 s.f. detached garage. The project would include a new 6,072 s.f. two-story home with attached garage, 876 s.f. secondary dwelling unit, and existing 1,620 s.f. detached garage to remain. The secondary unit would be deed restricted for income qualifying tenants, granting the project a 10% increase in maximum allowable floor area and lot coverage.
