Yes, there is a house somewhere behind there.

This ivy has been allowed to grow unchecked for many years. It is invasive, damaging brickwork and pointing, blocking gutters and working its way into roof spaces.

It should be cut down at its base and then carefully removed. The unknown is what lies behind!

The wall surfaces will need cleaning down and possibly repointing, the windows probably repairing and certainly redecorating etc.

Prevention is better than cure. Keep it trimmed regularly. Or preferably, don’t plant it in the first place.
