Document Description
The proposed project involves construction of a new single-family dwelling with an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) on a vacant, undeveloped 6,000 square foot parcel with an average slope of 55 percent. The project has generally been oriented to the north and east to take advantage of the view opportunities of Mount Tamalpais and Richardson Bay and beyond. The new five level residence including a detached garage is proposed to consist of approximately 2,670.45 square feet of floor area, with a 267 square foot ADU, and an approximately 441.44 square foot two-car garage. The overall residence covers approximately 32.4% of the lot area (1,941.39 square-feet) and proposes an impervious surface coverage of 3,388 square-feet (38.1% of the overall parcel area). The proposal would create a four-story residence with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and two half bathrooms with an elevator, and a detached garage. A detached two-car garage is proposed at street level, (Level 1). The elevator is accessed from the entry level (Level 2) and provides passage to the roof deck level (Level 5). The ADU is located within the entry level of the house. The detached garage is at street level (approximately 4’ elevation relative to street level at base of driveway) with access from Cazneau Avenue. The garage has no setback from the front property line. In front of the garage is a driveway sloped at 15% with concrete retaining walls on its perimeter. This area also includes three planting areas which are also bio-retention basins. A paved walkway alongside the driveway provides access to a trash/utility area and stairs that lead to the entry level. A utility niche, retaining walls and planters are provided in the driveway which are located in the public right-of-way adjacent to the Cazneau Avenue roadway. The access stairs between the garage level and the entry level have a landing halfway up the stairs.
