Google Maps Street View: Mysterious house blurred out – who’s home is this?

“If you see that your face or license plate requires additional blurring, or if you would like us to blur your entire house, car, or body, submit a request using the “Report a problem” tool.”

This could suggest that for whatever reason, the owner of the house decided that they did not want it visible to the public.

Commenting on the Reddit thread, one user wrote: “Nothing crazy. Anyone can request it. Just go to Streetview and report image.”

“It’s more common than you’d think, and people make the request for a variety of reasons,” another said.

The American house appears to be on the perfectly normal street of E 49th Street S and the building itself doesn’t look to be out of the ordinary.

Again, it is not only the house that is blurred out, it is also the surrounding areas including the cars and driveway.

Not one part of the house is visible to see while the other houses on the street are all visible and all look very similar with the same style windows.

While there is no exact explanation as to why this house has been blurred out, it may be again to protect the owners living there.

Another Reddit user explained: “Maybe you’ve made some renovations and are currently trying to sell the house but Street View shows it in an older, dilapidated state.

“Probably the most common is that people are just paranoid and don’t like the idea of anyone, anywhere being able to virtually skulk about in front of their house.”
