I was reading a dictionary for my kid but I can't get meaning of this sentence, "That is some house"? I'm wondering why 'some' is used, not 'a'?

Here's a link to the definition from a dictionary:
Also, sometimes this sentence might be:
• That's one house, Chips!
ErnestoAlonzoLast monthit s really good for me , new information but the classy one avoceyemalincarmelApril 2019well explained It actually goes with the context.Excitement talking about something or sometimes when expressing pride.
Eg:p1 oh you really know about dressing.
p2: you want to see fashion check behind you.
p1h geeeez that's some fashion.
nmesomtoChukwuMarch 2019Not always. It's an informal expression, possibly why you haven't heard it. MARYFE23March 2019nmesomtoChukwu, thank you.
Does native always use 'some' for expression in speaking language? I hardly hear it in movies or I've just missed hearing it.
Hi, I will try to explain you this, if I am wrong , someone will correct me. "Some" in that particular sentence means that that same house mentioned in the previous phrase is just any house standing in any place of the world. There's nothing special in it, it's just as any house you can run into.
exRangerApril 2019Not quite.... I refer the original question asker to the response provideed by nmesomtoChukwu -- his/her response is exactly correct. End of story.
