New Primary Structure: Driveways, parking pads, access point, garages or similar facilitiesSite Info
The applicant is proposing a new house and driveway for 826 Watauga Avenue. Proposed Site: 1. The front setback of the primary structure is 38.6 ft. and the setback for the front porch is 30 ft. 2. The applicant has stated he will keep as many trees as he is able. 3. The site plan shows driveway access off of Watauga Avenue. 4. The applicant has stated he will provide a walkway to the street. Proposed House: 1. The proposed new house is a 3-bedroom, 1-story structure measuring 30' W x 44' D. It has an asymmetrical front faҫade with a 16'W x 8'D front porch on the left side of the front faҫade. 2. The house is reminiscent of the Craftsman style. 3. The gable roof utilizes seal-tab shingles and has a 7:12 slope ratio. A smaller gable with the same materials and slope extends over the front porch. 4. The walls beneath the gables on the front faҫade are clad in vinyl shake siding. The large gable wall has a small rectangular vent at the top. 5. The porch roof is supported by three tapered wood columns on top of brick piers. The columns feature a plain base and capital. Wood rails and balusters run between the brick piers on both sides of the stairs. 6. The front door is appropriate for a Craftsman-style house. 7. There are two sets of 3-over-1 double-hung, double windows on the front faҫade. All other windows are 1-over-1. Notes on the floor plans state that all bedroom windows meet egress requirements. 8. The left side elevation shows three windows; the right shows two. 9. There is a rear deck with stairs on the left side elevation leading down to the yard. A rear door provides a second access point. 10. Exposed foundation will be stucco on the sides of the house, brick on the front to match the piers. 11. The drawings show horizontal siding on all other exterior walls. The applicant has stated it would be lap siding. However, he is also considering board-and-batten siding to differentiate it from the neighboring structure, which is also before this board this month for review (8-C-20-IH).
