What is a Costa Mesa accessory dwelling unit, exactly?
An accessory dwelling unit, or ADU, is commonly called a “granny flat”. It’s a secondary unit, or standalone studio or small home that may or may not be attached to an existing single family home. As noted in the LA Times article, these units were recently approved by the city of Costa Mesa. The city code for this type of Costa Mesa accessory dwelling unit says that the lot of the home must be at least 7900 square feet, and any additional unit must not exceed 800 square feet or 50% of the current size of the main home.
Only about 18% of all Costa Mesa residential parcels will be able to take advantage of this new addition to the city code.
Why is it being done?
Throughout many city areas in California, cities are running out of buildable land. While jobs are available and in demand, local cities often don’t have enough housing options for new residents. Adding Costa Mesa accessory dwelling units is one way to create more options to house a growing population.
Also, many multi-generational families would like to house their extended or elderly family on site with them. Makes sense as housing costs have sky rocketed as well as elderly living care has become expensive too.
Additionaly, a Costa Mesa accessory dwelling unit provides the opportunity for a home owner to rent out the space, helping to smartly pay for higher mortgage or living costs for their Costa Mesa home.
So there are three great uses for the Costa Mesa accessory dwelling unit. Interested? How about buying one? It’s going to be a huge trend going forward over the next 20 years.
