Two Story

This beautiful La Jolla property is located in the coastal zone, so the homeowners made sure to take advantage of the view with a roomy 2-story ADU. While they began with our Snap Standard 3BR/3BA 1,155 sqft floor plan, they made a number of modifications. The kitchen and living room were relocated to the top floor of the unit and a decorative spiral staircase replaces the standard stairs. These beautiful elements will provide a comfortable family getaway when necessary, and an attractive rental should the property owners opt to open it up.

Floor Plan:

Two-Story 3BR/3BA

This large two-story ADU is just under 1200 sqft. A first floor bath and bedroom/office offer flexibility, while dual suites upstairs are great for roommates.

Build Cost: $385K

The City of San Diego ADU Guide

SnapADU has built and is in the process of building dozens of granny flat projects within the City of San Diego. As such, we know the city’s ADU regulations and processes very well. Turnaround times at the city are drastically improving, with permitting taking 3-5 months in most cases (down from 8-10 months a year ago).

Of note, San Diego promotes the building of more ADUs through the affordable ADU bonus program. Some of San Diego is in the coastal zone, which will add additional time and cost to the permitting process for granny flats.
