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: Miami Beach, Fla.
Price: $22,500,000
The Skinny: New to market in Miami Beach is this slightly bizarro compound on guard-gated Hibiscus Island, which is asking $22.5M for six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and hundreds of square feet of sailcloth. The home, which Curbed has covered before but deems worth another shout-out as House of the Day sheerly for its strangeness, has 13,000 square feet of living space spread out over four different buildings connected by lengths of white cloth, which radiate out from a pillar atop the main house and run down to the various outbuildings. A tiered pool spans from the covered loggia of the home to the shore of Biscayne Bay, where there's 150 feet of water frontage for parking watercraft that won't fit inside the boathouse. Inside the home are beamed ceilings and an open kitchen and dining bar, featuring what has to be the worst set of deer antler barstools in the long, sordid history of bad bar stools. The home, which the brokerbabble notes "has been featured in multiple magazines, movies, and videos", last sold for $10.6M in 2008.
