Which sentence would be better while writing the adress of my house ?

My house is two house beside the the green buiding.

My house is the second house beside the green building

  • Those aren't addresses. Possibly the second would work as a description of the location of your house, although it does not say whether your house is on the left or the right of the green building. – Michael Harvey Jan 25 '20 at 12:53

That isn't an address, it's a description of how to find your house.

We say that a house is next door to the ones nearest to it, not beside. The expression for other buildings a little further away is [so many] doors from, so you could say

"My house is two doors from the green building."

  • Also "two doors down from..." or "two doors up from..." depending on the direction of travel. – Lee Mac Jan 25 '20 at 16:17
  • Or "next door but one". – stevekeiretsu Jan 25 '20 at 23:25
