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: Rowayton, Conn.
Price: $4,650,000
The Skinny: Just around the corner from the famous Rock Ledge estate, which was built from granite in 1913 for the president of U.S. Steel, this pristine white waterfront house seems to have survived from the same era. In fact, it was completed in 2007 to historically influenced designs. Located just a few feet above sea level on a diminutive private peninsula, the 5,000-square-foot spread enjoys sweeping water views over Long Island Sound and the Rowayton coastline. It combines faux historic details with modern finishes and a contemporary open floor plan and is listed for $4.65M, in part due to the easy commute to NYC.
