Hot Property: Fashion designer lists Studio City home
Retired fashion designer Geary Roark, whose dresses and suits have been worn on such TV shows as â€œDallas,â€ â€œKnots Landing,â€ â€œCheersâ€ and â€œHollywood Insider,â€ has listed his Studio City home at $1,099,000.
The Robert Byrd-designed storybook ranch, built in 1953, has hand-hewn beam ceilings, built-in cabinets and a two-sided brick wall with a fireplace in the living room and a built-in barbecue with a rotisserie in the dining room. There are three bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms in 1,894 square feet.
Byrd is known for creating homes that make the most of their natural surroundings. â€œItâ€™s built on a hill, and designed for the lot, so when you come up the driveway, there are a series of steps, and on the second level you see the openness of the house,â€ Roark said. â€œThe inside and outside are all sort of one.â€
