Is it not "Nyumba zingine" for "Other houses?"

There are scholarly articles about that. Prescriptively, nyingine is correct for singular or plural, but some people use zingine for plural.

In any case, this sentence could be singular or plural. "The other house is ...", "Other houses are ..." etc.

I think both are correct.
