I think we can add a clarification, which says that these directions are
not exact, but usually based on the approximate position with respect to a
milestone on the road.

You think?  That's a description of how somebody navigates to an address
like that
without a map.  Keep an eye on the odometer.  Look for "milestones."  If
you see
a "milestone" numbered higher than in the address, you've gone too far.
But it's
not how you navigate if you have a map.  Especially if the map display is
of using GPS to show your current position.
