A 1930s bungalow on a residential street in North Hills could make way for a small lot subdivision featuring nine single-family homes.

Located at 8327 N. Burnet Avenue, the 0.4-acre site is currently zoned to permit six residences, but applicant Crown Royal Developers is seeking Transit Oriented Communities (TOC) incentives to bump the unit count up to eight. According to a development application submitted to Los Angeles City Planning on Tuesday, each three-story home would have a private entrance off Burnet Avenue and a two-car garage accessed via a shared driveway at the rear.

The floorplans are identical with slight variations in their orientations. In addition to a side-by-side two-car garage, the ground floor boasts a guest bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and a walk-in closet — the perfect space for a live-in relative or a secluded home office.

The second floor is open-plan with a U-shaped peninsula kitchen, living room, dining room, den and powder room. Each main floor also includes a sliding door that opens onto a juliet balcony or a traditional balcony.

Upstairs, there’s a secondary bedroom with an adjacent three-piece bathroom and a laundry closet for stacked machines. The master bedroom touts a reach-in closet that spans an entire wall, a sliding door that reveals a juliet balcony, and an ensuite bathroom with either a walk-in shower or a combination bathtub and shower. Finally, the third floor features an open-air roof deck and an enclosed equipment area for storing outdoor furniture and other items.

Designed by GA Engineering, the contemporary-style small lot subdivision would be clad in white and gray stucco with wood-look siding. The home entrances are distinguished by orange front doors and concrete planters, while the frosted glass garage doors lend a modern feel to the exteriors.

8327 N. Burnet Avenue is minutes away from several shopping centers in Panorama City, home to big-box retailers, grocery stores, fast-casual restaurants, clothing stores, fitness studios and a movie theater. Other nearby attractions and conveniences include Sepulveda Basin Recreation Area, Van Nuys Station, Northridge Fashion Center and California State University, Northridge.
