    Has/There is in the sentence

    Hi there:
    May I say:
    1 Her house has a lot of tables.
    Or Should I say :
    2 There are a lot of tables at her house.
    I wonder if they are interchangable ,correct and natural to native speakers.
    Could you verify they for me?
    Thanks a lot!

    Say:
    There are lots of tables in her house.

    "Her house has a lot of tables," sounds unnatural to my ears.

    You could also say, 'She has a lot of tables in/at her house.'
