On July 7, 2021, the applicants submitted a Planning Application requesting Design Review approval to amend the Kelinsky Design Review and Tree Removal Permit (P1595) originally approved on December 22, 2017 on a lot located in San Anselmo. The approved project involved the following: (1) the demolishing of an existing 1,158-square-foot single-family residence and detached accessory structure; (2) construction of a 5,913 square foot residence; (3) construction of a 460 square foot Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) that would reach 14 feet, 10 inches in height above surrounding grade; and (4) construction of a 442 square foot, detached guest room that would reach 15 feet above surrounding grade. The approved plans included a new pool and removal of five “protected” trees and two “heritage” trees.
The approved 5,913 square foot residence would reach a maximum height of 30 feet above surrounding grade, and the residence would be located the following distance to corresponding property lines: 25 feet 11 inches from the northern front property line; 80 feet from the eastern side property line; more than 200 feet from the western side property line; and, more than 200 feet from the southern rear property line.
The proposed amendments include the following: (1) conversion of the existing 1,158-square-foot single-family residence to an ADU; (2) construction of a 4,479 square foot residence; and (3) demolition of a detached accessory structure and construction of a 500 square foot, detached guest room (office) that would reach 15 feet above surrounding grade. The proposed development, in combination with existing improvement, would result in 6,479 square-feet of total building area and floor area, which would result in a floor area ratio of 2.5 percent on the 263,942 square-foot lot (approximately 6-acres).
The proposed residence would reach a maximum height of 21 feet above surrounding grade, and the exterior walls would have the following setbacks: 21 feet, four inches from the northern front property line; 80 feet from the eastern side property line; more than 100 feet from all other property lines; and (3) the existing detached accessory structure would be converted to an office, rather than removal. The proposed amendments also include a new pool and removal of five “protected” trees and two “heritage” trees.
Design Review Amendment is required pursuant to Marin Development Code Section 22.70.060 because the project is in a substantial conformance with previously approved plan.
