110 Clapboard Ridge, which started at $35 million in September, 2015, is priced as of today at $25 million. It certainly seems to be an expensively finished home, but so far, no one has wanted it. The place was listed in 2009, "80 % completed", for $21.5 million, but eventually sold for $10.5. Maybe, now that it's been completed, that $10.5 price can be duplicated; hope springs eternal. 

 Mel Gibson's house on Old Mill Road also had one of these life-sized chess games, but even with 75 acres (this one's on 5) it failed, badly, to fetch its own $35 million  asking price. Maybe chess is too complicated for today's buyer, and a checker game employed instead?.
