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: Asheville, N.C.
Price: $10,750,000
The Skinny: Not far from the world famous Biltmore Estate is this somewhat less renowned chateau nestled along the back nine of the Biltmore Forest County Club in Asheville, N.C. Its three-foot-thick limestone walls contain a virtual circumnavigation of the globe, with a variety of themed rooms depicting life around the world as imagined by people who can afford to build a $10.75M palace, including a dromedary/Egypt room, a China room complete with lacquered screen, and a screening room featuring bucolic scenes of Colonial conquest by sea. There's also a complete Roman spa, a wine tasting room with arched brick ceiling, and what the listing calls "a very special Oak bar", all of which will "entertain guests and owners regally". The five-bedroom, seven-bathroom manse has 16,000 square feet of living space, with no less than four full kitchens, so a midnight snack is never more than a few satin-slippered steps away.
