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: St. Paul, Minn.
Price: $2,450,000
The Skinny: Built in 1889 by Frank B. Kellogg, the Secretary of State under Calvin Coolidge and 1929 Nobel Peace Prize recipient, this red granite mansion would be where he lived out his years and it was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1976. While the house was subjected to some awkwardly ill-advised updating, much of the home's historic virtue shines through, particularly in the wood-paneled foyer and the intricate moldings in the dining room. The unique wet bar and accompanying starry-sky ceiling treatment might not have been to Kellogg's liking, and they probably won't do much to expand the buyer pool, but that hasn't kept the current owner from listing this personalized palace for $2.45M.
