But "no house at all" appears to be in the place of 12 GP.
: I was pointing out that in the book - Sirius explains why his house was

There I disagree.
Remember how it was said that one could be right next to the Potters'
Fideliused getaway-cottage and not see it.I think the analogy would
be 11GP and 13GP believe they are adjoining.
