The project is to construct two new one-story residences, each with a bed and breakfast establishment, over two contiguous hillside parcels under the same ownership. The total footprint for all structures, inclusive of patios and accessory structures, on both parcels will be 14,127 sf. Ten guest parking spaces will be provided, one for each of the bed and breakfast guestrooms. Site access for the project will be taken from Topanga Canyon Boulevard via a 20-foot wide driveway that will serve both parcels. The northern parcel of the project falls within the protected vertical buffer area of a designated significant ridgeline per the Santa Monica Mountains North Area Community Standards District. As such, a variance is required for approval. Because the project involves development of more than one single-family residence on two contiguous parcels having slopes exceeding 25 percent and owned by the same persons, approval of a CUP is required. A CUP is also required for the establishment of a bed and breakfast.
