Two sentences ago we had Ez nem magas ház. Why isnt it correct here ?

This is not specifically about the height. It could be a single-storey house with a lot of rooms.

Because of the required structure of A hanem B: The X is not Y hanem Z.

If I say "A ház nem nagy van, hanem kicsi." What is so wrong about it?

The inclusion of "van" is simply unnecessary and turns a correct sentence into an incorrect one.

Van is omitted in the third person in most non-question contexts.

Commenting to follow. I think this is correct, but not sure whether it's acceptable usage. But i am also very much still learning.
