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: Barrington, R.I.
Price: $4,994,000
The Skinny: Commissioned by a prominent Providence businessman and designed by architect and historian Norman Isham, the Benjamin Aborn Jackson House was completed in 1913, after three years of construction. The sprawling, 11,000-square-foot brick mansion has been remarkably well preserved and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2008. As it prepares to enter its 100th year, the remarkable waterfront home has had its "expansive"—and no doubt expensive—slate roof replaced. Ceiling fans and some questionable bathrooms detract from the historic feel, but the bones of the place are undeniably attractive, as are the views, which run down a broad lawn to the bay beyond. Listed for almost $5M, this historic home includes eight bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, and three half bathrooms on 3.7 acres.
