Chinese term or phrase: A比B離C近些 (utf-8)
新年快樂!

I want to translate the following sentence as: I am telling you that my house is closer to the school than Mr. Zhang's.

我告訴他我的房子比張先生的房子離學校近些。

Although I believe to have everything right, I want to be sure that the comparison is correct.

Your confirmation or disagreement would be appreciated.

As always,
