Why not "Buradaki evi" ?

Subjects are never in the accusative case. Alternatively, that could also be the 3rd person possessive suffix and could mean "Her/His house that is here."

But once again, subjects are never ever ever in the accusative case :)

Is yasli wrong?

yes it is. yasli is used for human, while for objects we use eski

The fact that this distinction/rigidity is built into the language makes me sad.
