l'ancienne maison = la maison dernière
This question relates to:French lesson "Ancien = former / old (adjectives that change meaning according to position)"
are these two the same meaning?

Hi James ,
'Ancienne' in your example means former/previous so you might say .
"Dans mon ancienne maison j'avais cinq chambres "= In my previous/former house I had five bedrooms.
In my opinion, if you say: "Dans ma dernière maison", it sounds as if you are a serial mover and it is the last one in a long list ...
Hope this helps!
