The applicant requests Variance approval to legalize 144 square feet of additional floor area to an existing single-family residence in unincorporated Kentfield. With the addition, the single-family residence has a floor area of 1,910 square feet and a total building area of 2,384 square feet, resulting in a floor area ratio of 41 percent on the 5,679 square foot lot. The addition reaches a maximum height of 26 feet above surrounding grade, and has the following distances from the property lines: 19 feet from the eastern front property line, 49 feet from the northern side property line, 14 feet from the western side property line, and 27 feet from the northwestern rear property line.
Variance approval is required because the project exceeds the maximum 35 percent floor area ratio requirement per the Kentfield/Greenbrae Community Plan.
