Woman who lived near real house from The Watcher has questioned a major scene from the first episode

A woman who lived close to the house which inspired The Watcher has revealed what she truly thinks happened compared to a scene in the first episode.
Prepare to not be able to sleep tonight:
It tells you enough as it is that the series was created by Ryan Murphy, who co-created American Horror Story. If you dared to click play and begin making your way through the seven episodes only to find you can no longer get to sleep at night, you really only have yourself to blame.
It's when films or series state they're based on a real story which really chills one to the bone.
To make matters worse, Shanna Kelly, who grew up locally to the actual Watcher house has since taken to social media to weigh in with her theories and take the creepiness scale from an already spine-tingling 10 to a whole new level.
Kelly took to Twitter to explain how she 'grew up a block away from the Westfield Watcher house and was in high school while this was going on'.
"I’ll be sharing my thoughts and comparisons to what really happened. Here’s what the house really looks like," she continued.
The image shows a house which, at first glance, looks quite pretty and quaint, lit softly in a warm glow of sunlight and seemingly like any other house on the street.
But oh how appearances can be deceiving.
Kelly revealed her 'favourite part' of the first episode of the Netflix thriller is 'when the dad is running around the house looking out all the windows to see who could see into the rooms'.
"This was one of the biggest puzzles I remember everyone talking about. We’d analyse each neighbour's position.
"You can see in the photos the house to the left, right and one across the street. There’s also a row of houses directly behind it. And there’s LOTS of windows into the house," she explained.
Kelly continued: "The Watcher says in a letter that he saw the daughter painting on an easel in the enclosed porch, asking, “Is she the artist of the family?”
However, the local reflected: "The easel couldn’t be seen from the street, only from a neighbour's house..."
Have fun trying to go to bed without the lights on tonight, don't say I didn't try to warn you.
