The applicant intends tear down an existing residence on a developed lot, rendering the lot vacant, and requests Design Review approval to construct a 2,211 square foot residence with a 441 square foot detached garage in Mill Valley. The proposed development would consist of 2,652 square-feet of total building area and 2,211 square-feet of total floor area, which would result in a floor area ratio of 29 percent on the 7,410 square-foot lot. The residence would reach a maximum height of 27.28 feet above existing grade and the exterior walls would have the following setbacks: 24 feet from the western front property line; 9 feet from the northern side property line; 13 feet 4 inches from the southern side property line; and 53 feet from the eastern rear property line. The detached garage would reach a maximum height of 22 feet above existing grade and the exterior walls would have the following setbacks: 3 feet from the western front property line; 27 feet from the northern side property line; 3 feet from the southern side property line; and more than 100 feet from the eastern rear property line.
Design Review approval is required pursuant to Marin County Code Section 22.42.020.D because the property is less than 50 percent of the required lot size required under Marin County Code Section 22.82.050.
