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: Pound Ridge, N.Y.
Price: $3,125,000
The Skinny: Philip Johnson might have immortalized the glass wall with his iconic Glass House in New Canaan, Conn., but for years the style has been associated with the big-city apartment towers (including Johnson's own Urban Glass House). Those looking for the light and openness of floor-to-ceiling glass with more of a rural feel would be well served by this six-bedroom estate on 6.5 acres in the New York suburb of Pound Ridge. Built in 1999, the 7,600-square-foot house was designed by architects Ogawa/Depardon, and according to the New York Times, an agent represents the house. No, not a real estate agent, a film location agent. If this stone facade is looking a little familiar, it's because in 2005 alone at least 15 photo shoots were conducted on the property. Then, the house was for sale for $4.2M, but apparently all that publicity hasn't paid off. The listing recently suffered its latest price chop, all the way down to $3.125M. After the jump, check out a video walkthrough and interview with the owner.
