Is it just me, or does the audio (at the normal pace) sound a bit strange? To me, it sounded like there was an 'a' at the end of 'двор', which briefly confused me.

I heard 'двора' too..

It's perfectly fine. I am a native Russian. It's a bit slower than we normally say (for the sake of learners) but not unnatural in any way.

Adults more often use the word large while children more often use the word big. Therefore "our yard is large should be accepted."
