Controversial SFDs now for sale

Two controversial Mount Lookout houses are now for sale, listed with Comey & Shepherd Realtors for $1.075 million and $1.1 million.

The two houses, being built by Metropolitan Design and Development on what was once a single lot at 1228 and 1236 Tannehill Lane, sparked concern by a group of neighbors who felt that the setbacks were not consistent with those of other houses in the neighborhood.

These concerns, and those of residents in Hyde Park, have led the City to consider changing setback rules for new construction and downzoning properties in both neighborhoods to prevent the subdivision of lots.

The proposed zoning changes are tentatively scheduled for a City Planning Commission hearing in June.

Designed by Hans Neutzel and Randy Hirtzel, the new houses will be clad in brick and stucco, and the builders are offering custom finishes to the buyer.
