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: Old Saybrook, Conn.
Price: $13,000,000
The Skinny: Completed in 2005, this modern shingle-style residence fits in well on Old Saybrook's Fenwick peninsula, a tiny hamlet near New London with plenty of turn-of-the-century architecture. Built nearly a century after many of its neighbors, the five-bedroom, seven-bath mansion impresses from the outside, with a period-authentic facade, but there are some design hiccups inside, like the cluttered kitchen and faux-weathered painted flooring. Situated near the tip of the peninsula, the 1.68-acre property fronts on both Long Island Sound and the mouth of the Connecticut River, with a scenic lighthouse located directly in front of the house, at the end of a stone breakwater. This lovely setting comes at a steep price. Modern seaside cottage is currently listed for $13M.
