    Hi,

    Sentence 3 is correct.

    Sentence 4 would be correct if 'that' instead of 'which' was used.

    They are all OK (#4 for British English. In AE, we would use 'that".)

    Technically, "not (at) John's" should follow "house", but in a short sentence the meaning doesn't get lost. :wink:
