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: Seattle, Wash.
Price: $2,195,000
The Skinny: Graced with some over-the-top brokerbabble, this converted school gymnasium is "a symphony of sensual angles, beguiling light-filled spaces, superlative craftsmanship and innumerable details of wit and sophistication." There must be something like wit lurking in the decision to put the word "lubrication" in bold letters above the bathtub, but otherwise this is simply a well executed loft conversion. Split over two floors, the two-bedroom, three-bath unit enjoys a double-height living room, a sprawling open kitchen, and a series of giant double-hung windows, some of which open onto a densely landscaped private courtyard. Purchased in 2011 for $1.75M, the unit has been listed just two years later for $2.195M.
