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: Valparaiso, Ind.
Price: $1,100,000
The Skinny: Completed in 2000 by the noted Chicago firm Wheeler Kearns Architects, this modern pastoral country home lies an hour drive southeast of the Windy City in the prairies of Valparaiso, Ind. Set on a 10-acre private hilltop, the 3,600-square-foot, four-bedroom house mixes traditional forms with modern sensibilities, boasting walls of glass windows, an up-to-date kitchen, and all the charm of a more conventional country home. The grey-walled structure is surrounded by acres of informal gardens and was designed to maximize the views of the adjacent former farmland. It is currently listed for $1.1M.
