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: Pacific Palisades, Calif.
Price: $1,560,000
The Skinny: Of the many post-war wood-and-glass homes in Southern California, few have been as well preserved and updated as this Pollack & Kahn creation in Pacific Palisades. Built in 1955, the house seems to hover above the street, as the living space protrudes out over the carport. Inside, there's plenty of period-accurate midcentury furniture and the kitchen has been left largely intact, but with the addition of a modern cooktop. Outside, a pair of architectural chimneys anchor a dining patio enshrouded in landscaping. This one certainly isn't for the Louis XIV types, but would be perfect for a couple looking for the quintessential midcentury home, provided they've got the budget to cover a $1.56M price tag.
