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: Gloucester, Mass.
Price: $3,495,000
The Skinny: Located in the lee of Cape Ann, Gloucester, Mass. is best known as a commercial fishing mecca, where many of the trawlers that ply the Grand Banks are based. Its picturesque coastal location has also made it a popular summer destination for generations. This classic shingle-style estate is certainly a product of the town's vacation set, located next door to the Eastern Point Yacht Club and facing the pleasure boats moored in Gloucester's outer harbor. Built in 1890, the 5,000-square-foot cottage occupies 1.28 treed acres and includes five bedrooms, six bathrooms, and a Japanese tea house. Known, fittingly, as The Boulders, the house is currently listed for $3.495M.
