 Postally it is.  In terms of a residential area, it isn't.  So I didn't
extend the residential area to
include the farm (that would be silly).  Nor did I turn the residential
area into a multipolygon
so I could include the farm that way (equally silly, in my opinion).  But
in the farm's address, it
says Blaenannerch.

There are many hamlets in this part of the world that consist of a handful
of houses.  But the houses
within the hamlet are relatively close.  And there are usually road signs
identifying the hamlet.

The real world is messy...
