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: Rolling Hills, Calif.
Price: $8,499,000
The Skinny: Classic California Ranch meets nouveau-riche Regency-lite in this Cliff May design on SoCal's Palos Verdes Peninsula, a look which is all the more unfortunate for apparently being intentional, as the listing tells us that the home's 2010 remodel—which left marble bathrooms and gaudy chandeliers in its wake—cost the current owners $2M. So either the designer went crazy or the owners did. Happily, it's not all bad: there's a pool with retractable roof and wet bar, a wood-paneled gaming and bar room, and a dry sauna. The 14,000-square-foot spread, which looks out over the L.A. basin and the Pacific Ocean, sprawls over four acres, and includes a tennis court and a guest house, as well as a driveway that fits 30 cars. Yes, the broker does park the ever-popular "entertainer's paradise" sobriquet right in the middle of the listing. It also mentions the gym before casually letting slip that there's totally a cabana on the grounds. It's asking $8.499M.
