Have a nomination for a jaw-dropping listing that would make a mighty fine House of the Day? Get thee to the tipline and send us your suggestions. We'd love to see what you've got.

Location: Palm Springs, Calif.
Price: $1,995,000
The Skinny: Located just above downtown Palm Springs, this midcentury number is nestled against an enormous boulder that forms a border for the pool and grounds the glassy 1,500-square-foot house against the hillside. The listing cites prolific Palm Springs architect Albert Frey—who designed the nearby "Frey II" house now owned by the Palm Springs Art Museum—as the man behind some of the design details, though, notably, not the initial structure. It took a restoration by the current owners to return his vision to life. Over a year and a half, inefficient single-pane glass was replaced, the canopy was restored to its original design, and the pool was reconfigured to match Frey's blueprints.
