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: $3,300,000
The Skinny: By the time Mr. and Mrs. Paul Tuckerman completed their second home in the tony gated community of Tuxedo Park in 1928, their daughter, Dorothy Draper, was already on her way to becoming an interior design icon. The French Norman-style estate was designed by Frederick Foster and sits atop a high promontory with views of Tuxedo Lake. The house features eight bedrooms, 6.5 baths, a guest apartment, English gardens, and a wood-paneled elevator. Given the historic details, three acres of land, and close proximity to NYC, the $3.3M price tag doesn't sound so harsh.
