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: Tucson, Ariz.
Price: $975,000
The Skinny: Nestled in a secluded corner of the desert, this one-bedroom steel-and-glass compound is fittingly known as the Desert Nomad House. Comprised of three independent structures—one an en-suite bedroom, another an office, and the third a combination living, dining, and kitchen unit—the compound strikes us as the perfect place to entertain, so long as the guests don't plan on staying over. The modern interior finishes, combined with sweeping views of the desert, make for the very picture of serenity. The price includes almost five acres of cacti and tumbleweed, so some dingbat can't build his McMansion on your desert doorstep.
