——— The outside of the Bates house is extremely small. The front porch is no more than 10 feet wide, and the whole house less than 25 feet wide, and perhaps 30 feet deep. (This is about the size of 4 of their hotel rooms.) And yet many of the rooms inside the house are much larger than this. The master bedroom alone is at least 30’x30′, and it is just one room on the upper hallway, that includes a vaulted stairway



——— The exterior of the Bates’ house is a faithful reproduction of the design for the characters’ house in Psycho (1960), which was in turn modeled by Alfred Hitchcock after Edward Hopper‘s 1925 painting The House by the Railroad. That painting was the very first one that was acquired by New York’s Museum of Modern Art (in 1930)
