Actually it's not odd. Here's why. The light pole has been an existing fixture for quite some time, and was placed near the edge of the existing parking area. But either the carport was enclosed & extended or the the garage wa extended recently, thus creating a weird parking arrangement.
I doubt a previous owner was mad & installed a light pole. When home owners are mad about a foreclosure, there are easier things to disrupt, destroy or damage the home other than installing a light pole.
There is room to manuever into the garage however.
Thanks for your inquiry...
