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: Los Angeles, Calif.
Price: $18,000,000
The Skinny: This just-listed ultramodern home in the Mount Olympus district of the Hollywood Hills is tailor-made for a certain type of person for whom residing in a subdivision named after the home of the Greek gods (Hercules Drive) is just something you do because, well, you can. And sure enough, the owner of this home lays it all out there in the estate's rather amazing HomeAway profile: "I am a successful internet entrepreneur and angel investor who made a fortune building successful internet ventures….I am leaving [sic] a dream and would love to share it with those who can appreciate creativity and style." So welcome to the dream, which includes a glass elevator to whisk you from the 10-car underground garage to the upstairs master suite, a kitchen of the bluest electric blue, and panoramic city to ocean views. There's also a marble staircase perfect for making grand entrances, the obligatory infinity pool, and sliding glass walls throughout. Aficionados of kitsch and/or run-on sentences will also be interested to know that "Water slides over the external wall of the house reflecting changing color light creating a las vegas style effects at night time." The four-bedroom, 5,000-square-foot home is asking $13M, or you can try before you buy by shelling out $2,750 a night.
