New, 6 comments

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: Boston, Mass.
Price: $1,899,000
The Skinny: High atop the former Tower Records building, this penthouse crowns a Frank Gehry-designed conversion on one of Boston's storied streets. Unlike the lesser units in the building, the penthouse peers out from underneath the very Gehry superstructure, with panoramic views of the city, including the iconic Citgo sign and Fenway Park. Listed for $1.9M, the three-bedroom, three-bath apartment measures 2,200 square feet, and boasts towering windows and a duplex layout that gives the place a house-like feel. The close proximity to the Mass Pike highway isn't exactly a selling point, but from this high up—and without any outdoor space—it shouldn't be much of an issue.
