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: St. Louis, Mo.
Price: $1,499,000
The Skinny: The listing for this midwest manor declares: "Don't miss the opportunity to live in St. Louis' version of New York's Central Park West." Now, that sounded like a tall order until we caught a glimpse of the interior. Sure enough, the millwork and finishes rival anything on the tony NYC boulevard. Honduran mahogany is the highlight here, and a recent two-year renovation has left much of the original detailing undisturbed while modernizing the property with a freshly appointed kitchen, security system, and gated driveway. The kicker is this place is listed for just $1.5M, less than a 10th of the place we looked at on Central Park West back in November. And this mansion looks to be not only more than twice the size, but more finely embellished, too.
