Named after the Swedish word for “morning,” Arla is a boutique collection of single-family homes and live/work residences in sought-after Eagle Rock. The small lot development by Encore Capital Management features communal areas and a “Central Park” where residents can gather with friends and family. Priced from the high-$700,000s, the homes were inspired by Scandinavian design elements and strike a balance between functionality and livability.

While there are a handful of mixed-use homes available with commercial frontage on Eagle Rock Boulevard, only one residential home remains in Phase 1 — Plan 3A. This 2,107-square-foot, three-bedroom abode boasts four bathrooms, a flexible ground floor den, and a spacious rooftop terrace with mountain views.

The garage can accommodate two vehicles and there’s even space to park your bicycle. Upstairs, the open-concept kitchen, living and dining area serves as the true heart of the home, complete with a large center island with breakfast bar seating. Off the kitchen is a bedroom with an ensuite bathroom that’s perfect for overnight guests.

The third floor includes another secondary bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and a reach-in closet, plus a convenient laundry room. The luxurious principal suite includes a roomy walk-in closet and an ensuite bath with a separate soaking tub, frameless glass shower enclosure, double vanity and a separate water closet.

The rooftop terrace is the pièce de résistance, offering plenty of space for cooking, dining and lounging zones. Enjoy sweeping views of Eagle Rock and the San Gabriel Mountains, while maintaining privacy from your neighbors. This is the last available residential home in Phase 1, and similar models will not be released until 2021.

Those in the market for a live/work residence can choose from the one-bedroom-plus-den floorplans that tout two full bathrooms and a separate retail or commercial space with a powder room. These multi-use dwellings come with double garages, island kitchens, large living and dining areas, and dens that could be converted into bedrooms. Select floorplans feature a balcony and/or retail patio for café-style seating.

Arla is located in laid-back Eagle Rock, home to mouth-watering restaurants, atmospheric bars and locally-owned boutiques. Residents will also have easy access to other vibrant NELA neighborhoods, like Highland Park, Glassell Park and Atwater Village.
