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: Tuxedo Park, N.Y.
Price: $5,400,000
The Skinny: The holiday season is primetime for the penguin suit, the monkey suit, the tuxedo, and so on. And guess what? The quiet, gated enclave of Tuxedo Park, N.Y., is so old money that the unofficial uniform of rich old white men shares its name. In this context, the old-school features of this brick mansion seem right at home. With a chauffeur's apartment, seven garage bays for the cars said chauffer pilots, and a "tea house," it's no surprise that the house is being offered for sale for the first time since 1916. Don't expect to pay pre-war prices, though; the 10,000-square-foot main house sits on 18 acres overlooking the lake. While the trendsetters might have moved on, the big money hasn't: the first to pony up $5.4M calls this bad boy home.
