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: Dallas, Texas
Price: $8,995,000
The Skinny: This impressively outfitted Georgian mansion, overlooking Turtle Creek in Dallas, has a little secret. While the property presents beautifully from the street, the three-quarter-acre lot backs up on the rear of a strip mall. While that's hardly the sort of prime location one might expect from a $9M home, the lush landscaping does enough to disguise the commercial neighbor and, hey, at least the buyer could walk to the bank. As for the house itself—a five-bedroom classic designed by legendary local architect Anton Korn—there's plenty to like, with two master suites, eight bathrooms, and original detail galore: "hardwood floors, hand-blown windows, intricate millwork, and antique fireplace surrounds." There are modern amenities as well, like an elevator servicing all floors and updated kitchen and baths.
