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, California

Price: $850,000

This midcentury gem was designed in 1947 by the Palm Springs modernists Albert Frey and Robson Chambers, who were also responsible for the Palm Springs City Hall, North Shore Yacht Club, Palm Springs Tramway Gas Station, to name a few.

The house retains some original architectural details from the ’40s and gets incredible natural light through numerous floor-to-ceiling windows and doors. It's located on a large corner lot—with a fantastic pool—that offers views out to Mount San Jacinto, the second highest mountain range in Southern California.

The low-slung facade, with its covered garage, has been well preserved over the years. The current owners have added a sculptural touch to the lawn.

Coming in at 1,757 square feet, the home has a main level anchored by a fireplace, plus living and dining spaces lined with glass walls.

Openings in the kitchen, which look out onto the adjacent living areas, bring light into the space. There's also access from here to the backyard.

There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms, with the option to convert a den into a third bedroom. The master gets some of the best views of the property.

The home, located at 695 South Warm Sands Drive, is listed for $850,000.
