    to the nearest / at the nearest

    1. I want to transfer my bank account to the nearest branch (Branch of Bank) of my new house.
    2. I want to transfer my bank account at the nearest branch (Branch of Bank) of my new house.

    Are the above sentences grammatically correct?

    Re: to the nearest / at the nearest

    Both of your sentences are wrong towards the end. We don't say "the nearest branch of my house". You could get away with "I want to transfer my bank account to the nearest branch to my house" or "I want to transfer my bank account to the branch nearest my house". The second one is the better of the two.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
