Design Guidelines Manual

Section II:   Garages & Accessory Buildings

  • Garages may be integrated into the main structure, or connected to the home through the use of a breezeway, patio, garden room or other similar elements
  • Integrated garages should be visually removed to reduce the impact onto the street scene
  • Each garage may have a separate bay or maximum double bay fašade per garage door
  • Conditions with three or four car garages, no more than two doors may exist on the same wall plane
  • Third (and fourth) garage doors must be offset by a minimum of three feet (3'-0")
  • All garages must be fully enclosed, carports (for the purpose of permanent parking are prohibited), however porte-cocheres are permitted
  • A variety of garage entry conditions are encouraged:
      Split garages with motor court configuration
      Side load
      Deep garages with abundant amenities
      Tandem
      Rear lot location
      Semi-detached & detached
  • To ensure a low profile from the street, the maximum garage plate height at the side yard setback shall be nine feet (9'-0")

  • Accessory buildings or out-buildings are permitted within Wilson Ranch, with the provision that all structures meet the required setback standards and are within the building envelope.
    Requirements for accessory buildings are:
      Uses include sheds, detached garages, guest houses, spa houses, etc.
      Stand alone or be connected to the main dwelling by a breeze-way or walled-in porch
      Structurally and visually compatible with the main dwelling
      Design must reflect the selected architectural style of the home


Some examples:


 Various garage plan configurations


Low, broad single story base plane, symmetry within asymmetrical massing

  Rear garage with breezeway connection


  Detached side load garage creates an appealing scale on the homesite


Traditional barn with vertical wood siding


Sheds as accessory buildings matching the architecture
