Good point. The original property of I believe 10 acres and some buildings
were originally purchased by a group of local Theosophists and then was
transferred to the Theosophical Society. Later it was during Annie Besant's
time she bought rest of the property and now the total acreage is about
300+. I have not seen any indication of the property being in any way a
diplomatic one.

This is a good question for historian to dig into.
