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: Greenwich, Conn.
Price: $18,750,000
The Skinny: Usually the houses we find stateside that have been built in the English cottage style are just that, cottages. This one is a bit different. Despite the wood over stone construction, this Round Hill mansion in Greenwich, Conn. measures some 17,100-square-feet, enough for a dozen country cottages. The humble exterior architecture gives way to some extravagant interiors, with a double-height foyer with twin staircases, a vaulted living room, eight fireplaces, "hand-painted medallion floors, hand painted French wallpaper, embroidered silk-covered ceiling, rich lacquered walls, antique mirrors and sterling silver hardware." Phew, that's a lot of pricey add-ons, but enough to justify a $19M price tag?
