An existing, non-historic rear deck is shown to be replaced by an 11' 6" second-story connection, and covered porch constructed at the rear. Simple 1/1 double-hung and single-light fixed casement windows are proposed for the addition. Asphalt shingles on the new roof are shown to match shingle on the existing building. The proposed addition is shown to be sheathed in wood shingle contrasting with the historic building's stucco finish. Plans also show the restoration of tapered bungalow columns on the front pvrch based upon the c.1949 tax assessor photograph of the property. CRITERIA FOR THE BOARD'S DECISION: Subsection 9-11-18(bl-3)(c), B.R.C. 1981, sets forth conditions an application must meet in order for the Landmarks Board to issue a Landmark Alteration Certificate. (b) Neither the landmarks board nor the city council shall approve a landmark alteration certificate unless it meets the following conditions: (1) The proposed work preserves, enhances, or restores and does not damage or destroy the exterior architectural features of the landmark; (2) The proposed work does not adversely affect the special character or special hisforic, architectural, or aesthetic interest or valice of the landmark; (3) The architectural style, arrangement, texture, color, arrangement of color, and materials used on existing and proposed structures are compatible with the character of the existing landmark and its site; (c} In determining whether to approve a landmark alteration certificate, the landmarks board shall consider the economic feasibility of alternatives, incorporation of energy-efficient design, and enhanced access for the disabled. ANALYSIS: 1. Does the proposed application preserve, enhance, or restore, and not damage or destroy significant exterior architectural features of the landmark or the subject property within an historic district? Staff finds the proposed reconstruction of the porch based upon historic photographs will not damage or destroy the exterior features of the contributing house as it is generally compatible and consistent with the Highland Lawn Historic District Design Guidelines & the General Design Guidelines. In terms of mass, scale, A(GENllA ITEM #7B PAGE (1~ S:\PLAN\dataUongrang\f 11S"1'\AL'I'C;LtZ! :S\Historic Disiricts\Ili ;hlz~id Lawn~Vlannc527\03.04.09.527 Maiine.doc and location the proposed new construction is consistent with the design guidelines (see Design Guidelines analysis section) and will not compromise contributing property. 2. Does the proposed application adversely affect the special ehrat•acter or special historic, architectural, or aesthetic interest or value of the landmark? Staff finds that the proposed application will not adversely affect the special character of the landmark. Approximately 1,500 sq. ft. in size, the proposed addition's location, mass, and scale is generally consistent with the Highland Lawn Historic District Design Guidelines and the General Design Guidelines and will not overwhelm the 1,100 sq. ft. historic house or have an adverse effect on the district as a whole. 3. Is the architectural style, arrangement, texture, color, arrangement of color, and materials used on existing and proposed structures compatible with the character of the historic district? Materials proposed for the addition are to be painted shingles and stucco to match the existing building. c. The Landmarks Bvard is required to consider the economic feasibility of alternatives, incorporation. of energy-efficient. design, and enhanced access for the disabled in determining whether to approve a Landmark Alteration Certificate. Design Guidelines The board has adopted the General Design Guidelines to help interpret the historic preservation ordinance. The following is an analysis of the proposed new construction with respect to relevant guidelines.

When the Highland Lawn Historic District was designated u12005, it was understood that substantial additions could be constructed uz the area. This fact is reflected in the district specific design guidelines which states that "new additions to contributing houses are appropriate, so long as the scale of the addition does not visually overwhelm the existing building when viewed from Marine Street anal is compatible with the general range of building sizes found in the district." Staff considers the visual effect of the addition will be minimal when viewed from Marine Street. The average building size on the 500 block of Marine Street is 2,200 sq. ft. The pxoposal calls for 1,500 sq. ft. of addition to the existing 1,100 sq. ft. house for a total of. 2,b00 sq. ft. FINDINGS: The Landmarks Board finds, based. upon the application and evidence presented that the proposed Landmark Alteration Certificate application, subject to the conditions of approval above, will be consistent with the purposes and standards of the Historic Preservation Ordinance, and: 1. The proposed alteration preserves, enhances, or restores and does not damage or destroy the exterior architectural features of the landmark or the subject property within a historic district. (9-11-18(b)(1), B.R.C. 1981) 2. The proposed alteration does not adversely affect the special character or special historical, architectural, or aesthetic interest or value of the landmark and its site or the district. (9-11-18{b)(2), B.R.C. 1981) 3. The architectural style, arrangement, texture, color, arrangement of color, and materials used on existing and proposed structures are compatible with the character of the existing Indmark and its site or the historic district.

We are proposing a two story addition attached to the rear of the house, that would preserve the entire historic structure and only building above the six foot rear enclosed porch. We have designed the addition to have a 2 foot recess on the west side and a 8 foot by 12 foot recessed patio on the east side as a way to completely demark the new addition from the existing house. This sets the new addition 41' -6" back from the front porch on Marine Street, thus minimizing the impact as seen from Marine Street. The addition consists of a 804 sq. ft. main level sunken dawn 2`-6" below the existing 1049 sq. ft. main level. The new addition would have a covered deck with access to the rear of the house ,and an existing two car garage located off the alley. The new second level would be 899 sq. ft, which is also lowered to blend more with the one story craftsman bungalow. This would result in a Iota! above ground footage of 2752 sq. ft. This size is significantly smaller that several updated homes on the neighborhood. This house was moved to Marine Street from Regents Drive in Boulder ,and originally constructed in 1925. When Highland Lawn Historic District was originally proposed, considerable discussion took place regarding this particular house, in that it was the only single story Craftsman in the neighborhood. At that time, it was agreed that special consideration would need to be granted if the owners ever wanted to construct a second level, as it would be harder to hide the view from Marine Street. We believe that by sinking the new addition as well as setting the addition so far back from Marine that we have achieved a very low profile in relation to the existing house. In addition, three very large trees, including a 70 foot evergreen also block any view of the new structure. po box 498 niwot, Colorado ~ 80544 ~ 720 n494 7602 ~ February 5, 2009 City of Boulder Landmarks Board Park Central Building 1739 Broadway, 3rd Floor Boulder, CO 80302 Re: 527 Marine Street Request For Submitted Addition Approval Dear Board Members: We are the proud owners of 527 Marine Street, a 1925 bungalow that was moved to its current location, from 935 Regent Street (CU Campus), in 1956. We purchased the house because we love the Arts & Crafts period and style of building. We collect mission furniture and have large, original pieces in our home. The house, however, is very small and in need of an addition to make it more livable. We opposed historic designation of our block because we felt that the proposed Highland Lawn Historic District Design Guidelines would not allow us to add on in a manner that was visually consistent with our style of home. Some of you may recall that when the District was being considered by the City Council in May, 2005, a long discussion concerning our house took place (15 minutes, or 22%, of the 68 minute discussion concerning Highland Lawn). For your reference, we have enclosed a DVD and written summary of the 527 Marine City Council discussion in this request for approval of our addition plans. The gist of the discussion was that our home did not "fit" within the proposed guidelines and/or historic district because it is a bungalow (moved to the site) among turn-of-the- century Victorians and Edwardians. It was agreed, by all City Council members, that our bungalow was a "special case" and that it should have "special consideration" whenever an addition might be proposed. In fact, James Hewat stated in the hearing that certain language in a provision concerning second stories was expanded specifically to take our situation into account (afiow a pop of the existing roof). He also stated that he and a previous staff member had met with us and agreed we should be able to raise our roof toward the back of our house; the question was where the addition would begin. The City Council considered excluding our house from the district, then considered putting an exception in the guidelines for 527 Marine. Ultimately, it was feared that this would open the door for other homeowners in other districts to argue that their houses were "special cases," and so no formal or written provision was made for our home. It was, however, agreed that 527 Marine was to be given latitude when an addition was proposed. We now wish to put an addition on the back of our historic house, to make it more livable for us, as a modern-day (and also historic} residence. Currently, the house is 1,049 square feet on the main level and 936 in the legal duplex portion of the lower level, i.e., 1,985 square feet of legally recognized space. If the addition is approved, we will convert the house from amulti-family duplex into asingle-family home. Our lot is 10,000 square feet (50x200). The house is long and narrow, with an existing six foot high privacy fence at the front of the house which blocks any view into the back yard. The ground slopes downward toward two garages (one contributing, one not) at the alley. (See photographs.) We would like to refer you to the house as it appeared at 935 Regent Street (see photograph obtained from the Carnegie Library). There are three things of note in the photograph. The house originally sat up high from the street (as are the south side houses on Marine), giving it a higher profile. The original porch had traditional bungalow columns, which we would like to restore. Finally, in the left side of the photo; a gate and steps can be seen leading to the back porch (not originally aclosed-in part of the house). The house's profile at the back, when viewed from Regent Street, was therefore 5-6 feet out from the west side wall of the house. We have included tax record sheets concerning the house when on Regent in 1949 and on Marine in 1956. In our plans we have saved the entire existing house popping only the roof of the old back porch. Note that we have "synched" the house in where new and old are joined. By sinking the addition into the ground, the highest part of the new roof line will rise o~ 5.5 feet above the existing roof line. The proposed addition will begin a remarkable 86 feet from the edge of the street (46 feet back from the front of the house/porch}. As such, it will only be visible at one side view, and only minimally. Maude Babington stood on top of the roof, about 18 inches forward of the proposed addition, while Heidi Weckwert took pictures from various locations (our sidewalk, middle of street, sidewalk across street). As you can see from submitted photographs, Ms. Babington is visible in only one west-side view, and is far back from the street; she is not visible (from the sidewalk, from the middle of the street, or from the sidewalk across the street) when standing directly in front of the house; if you strain your eyes, you can see her legs through the large pine tree from the east-side location. It should also be noted that trees in Highland Lawn are contributing features of the District. Mature trees hide the addition from the street in all but that one limited viewing angle. Unlike Mapleton Hill, the Highland Lawn Historic District design guidelines focus on the street view. "New additions to contributing houses are appropriate; so long as the scale of the addition does not visually overwhelm the existing structure and site when viewed from Marine Street and is compatible with the general range of building sizes found in the district." (Underlining added. Additions to Historic Structures section.) The proposed addition will increase the main level square footage of the house by 804 sq ft, and will add 899 sq ft with the proposed upstairs. Total above-ground square footage (old and new) of the house will be 2,752 square feet. As such, our home will be in the mid-range of house sizes on the block. (Bar graph "500 Block Marine Street.") We have prepared two bar graphs showing the square footage of each of the 18 houses on our block. (The 19`" house is an alley house owned by Peter & Karen Freymuth, and is not included.) The top graph shows each house in the order that it appears on the block. The second graph presents the houses in descending order from the largest to the smallest. It is important to note that because the addition begins at the rear of a very long house, the perceived mass and scale from Marine Street is virtually unchanged. When the house is viewed from Marine Street, it is, and will continue to be, noticeably smaller in mass and scale than most other neighboring houses on the block. (Because it is currently a modest bungalow, it does not fit within high-profile, second story turn-of- f• _ ,r the-century homes.) (Also, houses on the south side of Marine, even the small ones, have a larger than actual mass appearance because that side of the street slopes up toward Flagstaff Mountain.) When viewed in conjunction with the houses in the neighborhood (see photographs), we believe that these charts help to make the point that our submitted design complies with the Highland Lawn Historic District Design Guidelines. We met face-to-face with almost all of our neighbors (at least one representative from each house) to discuss our proposed addition.' We reviewed the architectural plans with those individuals who wished to see them. Of 17 neighbors on the block, we have letters of support from 15 homeowners. One of the two remaining neighbors, a reclusive woman at 550 Marine Street, has not yet responded to our request for a meeting (we left a message on her answering machine). After reviewing the drawings, the other neighbor, at 520 Marine Street, wanted to think about the addition, but told us verbally that, at that point in time, she did not intend to oppose our plans. This constitutes virtually full support of our addition from the neighborhood. We own our own business, a consulting firm with pharmaceutical companies as our clients. Our work is mostly performed at national association conferences and "destination" cities. We will be using part of our home as an office (we will not see clients there). Our space needs are partially dictated by this need for office space. We enjoy entertaining and having guests (our 10-member dinner group overwhelms the house). Currently, we cannot get four chairs around our dining room table. The two bedrooms are approximately 10x11 and 9x8, and lack privacy due to the floor plan. We have one bathroom on the main level. The living room currently serves as our office (and cannot even accommodate a couch because it is too narrow). We have kept virtually all of the original floor plan intact, removing one wall (to take space from a closet for the dining roam}, and adding another (to make an office/study out of the middle bedroom and part of the living room). We are respecting this bungalow's original nature, inside and out. For the reasons outlined in this letter, we are requesting that you allow us to upgrade our home as we have proposed. Thank you for your careful consideration of our project. Sincerely, i+ 1 ~..~-~-rf~.~ i'f ~-.-~J Maude A. Babington, PharmD Hei i E. Weckwert, JD ~ One neighbor, MA Jyoravat, at 550 Marine has nol yet returned our telephone call. We met with and showed the plans to Francine Sheets at 520 Marine, but she has not yet decided whether to sign a letter of support. Her husband, Payson was out of town during the week that we met with the neighbors to prepare our survey and letters of support. Our discussion with Maly Beth Emerson, the owner of 1607 6`~' Street at the corner of G`~' and Marine, was conducted via telephone; her letter of support was faxed to us. 527 Marine is indicated by the "A" on the map ~ - ~ 1 More... t+lap J.itellae Terrain i i ~ v ' ~ I~ ~'r ~ ~ t . - ':1 ~ • ? / t 1~ ~ ~ ~~t r. ~ . . ~ "t ~w: si s7 7 'j ~ ~ - ;41-'arm - - ~ e i. : it :u ~'.y 500 Block Marine Street 3500 543 3000- 5 7* 2500 ~ - Is i7 - -55 544 - 1607 6th 2000 2 - - ~ 1500 55 57~ 1000 - ;c I' 500- - 0 Above Grade Square Footage 500 Block Marine Street (In Order of Square Footage) 3500 12 _ 05 3000 50 27* 2500 - ~ ~ 520 2000 - ~ 11 1 1500-' _ T6 1000 - ik ' S 500-' 0 - Above Grade Square Footage Addition to 527 Marine Street: Neighborhood Survey Name Address In Not in Comments on Support Support Marine of of Addition Addition / t Bridgette and John SOS "~-j , Winsor ~ Elliott and Francis S 11 ~ ~ .y Higgins - Scott and Joellen S 17 ~ ~=~~~_C~~~~~ ~Z~ 1 Raderstorf Chris and Sarah S41 ' ` , ~ / l Cottingham ("Poole) ~ - ~ ~ Tom and Melanie S43 i~~-~'~`Jr` Rebman ~ S v ti - , Peter and Karin S59 I `1 ~ Freymuth l ` SS1 ~kr~~~ ~ Mary Beth Emerson 1607 6th Russel McGoodwin S76 ~ / J e Addition to 527 Marine Street: Neighborhood Survey Name Address ~ In Not in Comments ~ on Support Support Marine of of ~ Addition Addition_ F,velyn Dale 568 ~ / ~ ~ ~L I, ~ C..
