Psh, houses aren't any more overpowered than warriors. Seriously. Figure out how much that house costs. Let's say a kitchen, a sitting room, a sewing room, and a lavatory/bathroom on the first floor, four bedrooms on the second, and use the top floor for storage. Going by the prices in Ultimate Campaign, that's 1200 for the bedrooms, 480 for the storage, and 1190 for all the stuff on the first floor. But since you specified stone walls, that probably counts as fortified, so that's another 300gp per room, for a total of 6470gp for the whole house.
Now, a team of 3rd level elite guards only costs 170gp. For the cost of that house, you could get 38 teams of 5 guards - that's 190 people! Assuming they have a Constitution of 12 or more and use their favored class bonus for hit points, each one has 22 hit points, so against the house you've got a total of 4180 hit points, not much less than its 4750, and they're wearing hardness 10 banded mail, with serious advantages in mobility and offense. :)
