Reply to "Noun Phrase"

Ok, I'll have to think again if "from the school" is a postmodifier of the NP or a separate phrase. What if I have a sentence like this: 

11'': The house, situated only a 5 minute bike ride from the school, is very big.

--> Would you consider "only a 5 minute bike ride" and "from the school" here as two separate phrases too? It's not possible to say *"The house, from the school situated only a 5 minute bike ride, is very big".

11''': The house is within walking distance to the school. --> Is "walking distance to the school" one NP or is "to the school" a separate prepositional phrase?

 

15: The school is  a great place for children who are eager to learn. 

15': For children who are eager to learn the school is a great place. 

--> In 15 and 15' "a great place" and "for children who are eager to learn" can be seen as two different phrases. However, in 15, could you also see "a great place for children who are eager to learn" as one NP (with "for children who are eager to learn" as a postmodifier that specifies the kind of place)?
