The master suite of a Dublin Road house includes two and a half bathrooms and a dining room.

Hyer lists the property as 32,675 square feet, but this includes guest houses and detached apartments. She said that the main house is very large and includes so many porches, huts, lofts, and other unusual spaces that it is difficult to determine the exact size.
