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: $4,600,000
The Skinny: Recognized as the birthplace of the tuxedo, Tuxedo Park, N.Y. has been home to some illustrious characters, including a young Dorothy Draper. The old money history, coupled with a close proximity—if, reportedly, a miserable commute—to NYC, seems like it would produce stately homes with stratospheric price tags. Instead, the stately homes are all there, but the prices are much lower than one might expect. This lakefront spread, known as the Price Collier Mansion, boasts the craftsmanship of a turn-of-the-century build, 11 acres, 10,000 square feet, 10 bedrooms, a swimming pool, and 12 fireplaces. With all the space and original details, $4.6M actually sounds like a deal.
