Chris R: No, you can't make effectively a 3rd unit. An R-4 allows 2 regular units and 0 accessory units. I think you would even need a variance, not just a special exception, because the rules do not provide for a special exception to exceed the number of units as far as I am aware, and the accessory dwelling rules do not apply to R-4s at all.

Note that in the R-4, you CAN have a 3rd unit if the lot is unusually big. There's some number of square feet that if you are over, you can do a 3rd unit. But it's larger than the typical lot, so it's unlikely.
