    Default Just down from a little pizzeria.

    Dear sirs,

    could you help me understand what does it mean:

    The house is in the end of the street, the third or fourth from the end, just down from a little pizzeria.

    That is further by road or nearer? Anyway, any comments would be highly appreciated.

    Michael

    As you are heading toward the end of the street, you will find a pizzaria. The house is past the pizzaria; that is, once you pass the pizza place you still need to continue past a few more buildings until you get to the house. So the house is further away from the pizzaria.

    It means: "a short distance from the pizzaria and on the same street."
