I have what was once a single family dwelling. The owner boarded up the hallway entrance to half of the house and converted what was once two bedrooms and a bathroom into a kitchen, bath and bedroom with its own exterior door. On the other half they added two bedrooms and a bathroom. Both sides are on the same meter and share the same heating/cooling unit. Zoning is R-5 - Multi Family zoning. I was classifying this a single family with accessory unit but given present zoning classification I believe the highest and best use of the property is multi family. The neighborhood consists mostly of single family homes however there are some duplexes, triplexes and fourplexes throughout the neighborhood. Is my thinking right?
