The applicant requests Coastal Permit and Design Review approval to construct a new 747 square foot accessory structure on developed lot located at 470 Pierce Point Road. The property is currently developed with a 2,110-square foot residence and detached 435 square foot garage. Construction of the proposed accessory structure, which is proposed to be utilized as an Accessory Dwelling Unit, would result in 3,292 square feet of building area and 2,859 square feet for a floor area, for a floor area ratio of 4.9 percent on the 58,203-square foot lot.
The proposed accessory structure would reach a maximum height of 12 feet above natural grade. The proposed setbacks, from the exterior walls of the proposed structure to the property lines, are as follows: 28 feet from the western front property line; more than 150 feet from the eastern rear property line; 10 feet from the southern side property line; and more than 150 feet from the northern side property line. The materials proposed to be utilized in construction of the new structure include redwood siding to match the existing residence, composition shingle roofing, and painted redwood trim.
The project also includes the following minimal site improvements a raised terrace on the southeast side of the accessory structure; installation of a new decomposed granite walking path from a newly proposed parking pad (adjacent to Pierce Point Road) to the new structure; and extension of utilities.
Coastal Permit approval is required because the project entails construction of a new accessory structure over 400 square feet in size. Coastal Permit approval is also required because the structure is proposed to be utilized as an Accessory Dwelling Unit. Design Review is required because the project is located in a planned zoning district.
