Hi:

I bought a house on the canals. Lot size 30'x95' (2850 sq. ft).
Coastal Commission comes into play as right on canal and the Venice Canals are a Historic Preservation Area. So, no build inside of 10' of property line on canal facing side. 22' height restriction at that 10' mark followed by an additional feet height every two feet of setback from the original 10' up to a maximum of 30' height with 42" for roof ceilings, railings and max 35' for chimney stacks. 15x30' = 450 sq. ft. has to be left completely open with NO development at some portion of the property preferably front canal facing end. 2 car garage and a third car inside property line on alleyway has to be allowed for. I this max build limit is 3,750 sq. ft on FAR allowance.
Would this plan work? I think it should, but would love to chat!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

If you are fortunate enough to have a site with an existing stream or grouping of trees, be aware of them, as they are great design elements and add a sense of nature and dynamism to any landscape. Development around trees, creeks or streams is highly regulated in some jurisdictions.If you are looking to purchase a property that has a large dry creek running through it, be aware that there could be setbacks required, greatly reducing the buildable area of your property.
Angled GlassAngling the glass walls so they reflect the ground or sky, rather than the immediate surroundings, is another means of retaining views, if a fairly impractical one. Nevertheless, the home shown here is a good example of a situation that works, given the fairly substantial angle.

Water sources. Natural streams are so beautiful but can be nerve racking for families with pets or small children. Make sure you know all the water sources in the immediate area and ask if there are safety rails and locks on all doors.More: Browse dream cabins and vacation homes
