Project Description

The applicant requests Design Review approval to construct 107 square feet of in-fill additions onto an existing 4,554 square-foot residence and 526 square feet of additions onto an existing 526 square-foot detached accessory structure (“pool house/garage”) on a developed lot in Kentfield. The total 633 square feet of proposed additions would result in a floor area of 5,160 square feet and a floor area ratio of 6.7 percent on the 77,467 square-foot lot.

The primary residence building would maintain a maximum height of approximately 35 feet above surrounding grade and the exterior walls would have the following setbacks: 73 feet from the western front property line; 11 feet, seven inches from the northern side property line; over 200 feet from the southern side property line; over 200 feet from the eastern rear property line.

The detached accessory structure (“pool house/garage”) would reach a maximum height of 26 feet above surrounding grade and the exterior walls would have the following setbacks: over 100 feet from the eastern front property line, 42 feet, two inches from the northern side property line, over 200 feet from the southern side property line, and over 130 feet from the eastern rear property line.

Various site improvements would also be entailed in the proposed development, including a new 767 square-foot deck attached to the existing residence and a 673 square-foot new deck attached to the existing detached accessory structure (“pool house/garage”). The new deck proposed to be attached to the primary residence would reach a maximum height of approximately 15 feet above surrounding grade. The new deck proposed to be attached to the detached accessory structure (“pool house/garage”) would reach a maximum height of approximately 11 feet above surrounding grade.

Design Review approval is required pursuant to Marin County Code Section 22.42.020 because the project would result in a floor area exceeding 3,500 square feet in a conventional zoning district.
