419 Sunfish Street sits up on a hill looking out over the trees of Hurst Creek greenbelt.
Built in 1968 by Richard E. Johns, the mid-century modern architecture is apparent in walls of full height windows and high sloped ceilings. The house is T-Shaped with vertical component suspended limestone piers over a carport and a horizontal portion featuring a series of glass door walkouts to a 70s style swimming pool and the Live Oak Gold Course.
After buying the property in 2015, Elizabeth James undertook a complete renovation which included stairs to the sunken living room and the bathrooms and kitchen reconfigured and modernized.
