For those that appreciate their mom, here's a nice gift for your mother on Mother's Day. Designed by well-known desert modernist Donald Wexler as his first residential commission when he struck out on his own, the four bed/ five bath home was built for actress Andrea Leeds and her husband Robert Howard, one-time owner of the Colony Palms Hotel and son of Charles S. Howard, the owner of famed racing Thoroughbred Seabiscuit. Per the listing: "Located on the most storied street in Palm Springs' most coveted neighborhood, Old Las Palmas, the home, also owned by novelist and producer Sidney Sheldon for 25 years prior to the restoration, features four bedroom suites – all of which open to the grounds and pool."
