Organic Living in the Heart of NELA

Arla homes are designed for functionality, livability and an unencumbered lifestyle. The mixed use homes offer commercial frontage on Eagle Rock Boulevard, with living space above-perfect for small business owners and creatives who want to live where they work! Homes at Arla have flexible floor plans for all lifestyles. Everything is brand new and low maintenance-you won’t be spending your weekends and income on home repairs leaving you plenty of time and money to live your best life!

Unlike other small lot developments, Arla is the first to have communal areas and a “Central Park” area to expand outdoor areas for residents. Shared, comfortable outdoor areas for building community and communing with nature is one of the tenets of Scandinavian design.

Located in desirable Eagle Rock at the union of Eagle Rock, Highland Park and Glassell Park-all of NELA is your playground. The main drags of York Boulevard, Eagle Rock Boulevard and Colorado Boulevard are rapidly changing with new shops, restaurants and nightlife mixing with classic, old school favorites. Occidental College campus, the San Rafael foothills, local parks and the newly opened Eagle Rock dog park offer ways to commune with nature in classic LA style. The artists, musicians, families, academics and professionals that share this culturally diverse area have LA energy but with a charming, neighborly, low-key vibe.  

Designed by three of Los Angeles’ top architects, interior and landscape designers, Arla homes draw on the landscape of Eagle Rock, avant-garde ideas and progressive Scandinavian design elements to fit into its surroundings. The result? Groundbreaking design for modern living.
