but isn’t highway=service suppose to lead to only one property?
No. Where did you read that? Have a look at Tag:service=alley - OpenStreetMap Wiki.

Note " but see Pipestems below"
A pipestem or shared driveway leads away from a main road toward several houses, each with their own shorter driveways. Pipestems are common in rural areas and planned suburban residential developments in the United States. Maintenance of the pipestem is typically the joint responsibility of all the homeowners of that particular pipestem. Pipestems may be named, but historically they have typically been unnamed. As of 2019, most pipestems are simply tagged highway=service with no service=* tag. However, some mappers tag pipestems explicitly, either using service=driveway driveway=pipestem or service=pipestem.
This can also appear in form of driveway shared by two houses and so on.

Even the service=alley tag entry on the OSM wiki gives an example of an image where the wall is very close to a building wall.
Since the screenshot is very small you might be right.
