DEL BARCO: The Queen Anne revival-style mansion has staircases that lead to nowhere, doors that open to a two-story drop, a witch's cap with strange acoustics. The house historian, Janan Boehme, says tour guides refuse to go up to the third floor after dark.
Hi everyone! How should I understand the bold part? Thanks in advance.

    It means that if you happen to fall out of those doors that you would fall two stories.
