Just a point of order here. I've seen this sentiment a few times before, but it seems a bit misguided.

I can't be the only one that assumes that THIS is supposed to be the front door of the mansion. We are guided right past it, into a side entrance. Our original HM has a lot going for it, but walking in the front door isn't something we can realistically hold over any of the other attractions.
Thanks for bringing this up! I kept thinking “but... you don’t” in my head.
But the point still stands, you actually get right up to the house and enter it directly.
