Anne Lister BS: House Names what is yours? +question (50) RE: BS: House Names what is yours? +question 31 Mar 17

Our previous (rented) home was Lower House, Lower House Farm - and it was the centre of the postcode. Lower House Farm was of course a different building, but luckily next door. We got used to having all manner of confusions with delivery vans, especially as there was no easy way of remembering which house was which along our (two mile) lane. There was a Church Cottage, which wasn't actually the cottage closest to the church, and a School House where no school was now.
We're now the proud owners of a newly built house and we're dealing with the complexities of having a plot number a few digits different to our street number. Wondering whether to name the house - and if so, then what. Apparently our little new estate is known locally as Balamory. You'd have to know the children's tv series and see our estate to know why.
