Hi Sam!! 안녕하세요!!
I like your question. Interesting!!🤔
저희 집은/ 길 가까이에 /있어요.
My house/is/near the street
- in English, put a preposition first and a noun
But in Korean, a noun comes before a preposition
저희 집은 / 길에서/ 멀리 / 있어요
My house/ is / far/ from the street
So -에서 means -로 부터, from
From and near are prepositions. -가까이에 and -에서(-로 부터) are also prepositions.
I hope you understand what I explained :)
Thank you for reading!! Haha
