An architectural gem in the desert
The post-and-beam Leff/Florsheim house was restored and updated a decade ago using the original plans and footprint. A row of exterior beams at the entrance, resembling spider legs, are a design signature of the architect, Donald A. Wexler. Inside, floor-to-ceiling glass walls bring in views of the surrounding mountains and swimming pool area.
