    It works. Depending on whom you ask, you might get differing opinions. Personally, I'd re-word it to avoid the structural complication.

    I'd probably use:

    "The house which belongs to Sharon's parents."

    Context will, of course, affect it.

    Re: Sharon's

    But, all in all, it's alright to say so?
