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: $13,000,000
The Skinny: Built in 1992 to blueprints by Ulrich Franzen—designer of Manhattan's Phillip Morris Building—this country estate proffers a striking post-modern profile in a land of shingle and stone. The five-bedroom mansion sits on seven acres of lakeview property, and the house takes advantage of those views with a towering glass atrium. Aside from the architectural distinction of the main house, the property boasts a two-bedroom guest house, parking for seven cars, a swimming pool, and an illuminated tennis court. A healthy roster of amenities, but, frankly, we're just happy this 1992 build didn't try to emulate the old guard.
