I think every neighborhood has a weird house. It might look haunted, or have a crazy paint job, or just not fit in. That house in my old neighborhood is for sale. We wondered for years what the heck it was and why it was built the way it was. We now know some of the answers, it was a home studio space for commercial photography, with a focus on food styling it seems. Regardless of it's past uses, this is one crazy cool home / shop combination. There are some great pictures in the MLS listing for the house, the shop space is pretty giant and immaculate.
