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: Walnut Creek, California
Price: $950,000

As we've aptly demonstrated, we have a soft spot for the work of developer Joseph Eichler, who built thousands of low-slung, boxy homes in the Bay Area and beyond that recall a certain era of efficient, functional California cool. This renovated Walnut Creek home, originally designed by Anshen+Allen in 1959 as part of the larger Rancho San Miguel development, offers in-demand, minimal Midcentury style with a high-gloss finish. The multi-hued four-bed, 1,742-square-foot home, asking $950,000, was the subject of a gut rehab by the previous owner, who renovated a building that once served as an assisted care facility (he picked it up in an all-cash deal after it fell into foreclosure, according to agent Ken Fox). While the original floor plan remains intact, plenty of extras were added to bump up the ask to just shy of $1 million.
