The applicant requests Variance approval to construct a new 390 square foot addition onto an existing residence in Kentfield. The existing floor area is 1,310 square feet and the proposed floor area is 1700. Therefore, the project would result in a floor area ratio of 23 percent of the 7,200 square foot lot. The proposed addition would reach a maximum height of 18 feet 3 inches above surrounding grade and the exterior walls would have the following setbacks: 13 feet from the northern front property line; 5 feet from the eastern side property line; 40 feet from the western side property line; 36 feet from the southern rear property line.
Variance approval is required because the project is proposed within the front 25-foot setback.
