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: Las Vegas, Nev.
Price: $12,500,000
The Skinny: Built on property that formerly belonged to the late eccentric billionaire Howard Hughes, this Marmol Radziner-designed Las Vegas mansion, known as the Murren Residence, was presumably completed in 2009 for MGM Resorts chairman and CEO James Murren. The casino executive commissioned artist James Turrell to install a "skyspace" in the front yard, a red-walled pyramid with a square opening in the roof and a lighting system designed to alter the viewers perception of the sky. Now that artwork is included in the $12.5M listing, along with the four-bedroom, seven-bath main house, a guest house, swimming pool, indoor basketball court, wine cellar, and underground garage for six cars. The 1.5-acre ridge-top property, situated at the end of a gated drive, offers sweeping views of the Las Vegas skyline including the audacious new CityCenter development, a project for which Murren was responsible.
