Rental ADU in Carlsbad Village Coastal Zone
Jefferson Street, Carlsbad, CA
Homeowner Story: Generate rental income
Special Circumstance: Coastal Zone
This coastal zone property located in Carlsbad was recently purchased by two sisters. We demolished an existing detached garage to build a SnapADU 2BR/1BA 750 sqft square plan. The ADU has a private entry off the back alley. The sisters are renting out the ADU for added income so they can later undertake a renovation on the main residence.
2BR/1BA 28×27 Square
With plenty of kitchen space, this unit is great for entertaining. A kitchen with pantry is standard, or add an island for more seating & storage options. The photos here show an enlarged kitchen that was upgraded by the owner, as well as additional French doors, which pushed the sliding glass doors towards the kitchen.
The Carlsbad ADU Guide
Several SnapADU team members live in Carlsbad, and we know the city’s regulations and processes very well. Turnaround times at the city are moderate. Carlsbad requires in-person submissions as well as soils reports (>500 sqft), both of which do add some processing time and expense. Also, some of Carlsbad is in the coastal zone and minor use permits are required in those areas.
