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: Seattle, Wash.
Price: $1,295,000
The Skinny: Built by, and for, a principal in the Seattle-based architecture firm Balance Associates, the Euclid House towers over its tiny, 0.14-acre lot to take advantage of Lake Washington views and the surrounding forest. Multi-paned glass walls front the great room, allowing close-up views of the dense woods, while 12-foot ceilings and white walls keep the interior simple and airy. The house looks remarkably fresh and contemporary in its 19th year, but the furnishings—particularly the black leather couches and technicolor velvet—could use an update. As an added bonus, the house costs very little to heat and cool thanks to energy efficient windows and radiant heating.
