Native English speakers, could you please help me with these issues?

Are both these sentences correct and do they mean the same:

a) "I own an house there, which I received as a family heritage."

b) "I own an house there, which I inherited from my family."

    They both mean the same thing, but they're phrased incorrectly. Here are the corrected versions:

    a)  "I own a house there, which I received as a family inheritance."

    b) "I own a house there, which I inherited from my family."

    Those are both correct, and they both mean the same thing.

    Neither is correct and the first one is so incorrect that it makes no sense.
