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: Beverly Hills, Calif.
Price: $8,995,000
The Skinny: This absolutely beautiful Craftsman-style home originates from the drafting pens of the Greene brothers Charles and Henry, who were pioneers of the style, and who created maybe its most perfect exemplar, Pasadena's magnificent Gamble House. But how did a Craftsman home come to be marooned above Sunset Boulevard in Beverly Hills of all places, you may be asking? The L.A. Times reports that it was actually constructed elsewhere and later moved to its current location by silent film star and frequent Lon Chaney co-star Norman Kerry. The four-bedroom, five-bathroom, 5,600-square-foot home comes packed with the kind of architectural details that start archinerds' hearts pounding, including decorative period lighting fixtures, glasswork featuring Arts and Crafts design motifs, kitchen built-ins, exposed beams and rafters, custom ironwork, and, of course, dramatic tiled fireplaces. It sits on a little less than an acre of shaded, super-pricey Bev Hills real estate, comes with a pool, and asks $8.995M.
