    Yes, both are TRUE

    but the description of Bag-End is over-specific in a few ways.

    A - Yes, Bag-End is the "ancestral" home of the Bagginses...well, specifically, Bilbo and Frodo Baggins, and only for one generation before Bilbo. Bilbo's parents built the home. Bilbo inherited it. It was not the "ancestral home" in the sense "this is where several generations of the Baggins family were raised". It was also not the "ancestral home" in another and perhaps more important sense: most of the Bagginses had never lived there. In the entire history of the home, only four Bagginses lived there.

    B - So, most of the Bagginses never lived in Bag-End.

    With regard to the novel "The Lord of the Rings"

    it was simply the (relatively) opulent home of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins

    located in the very respectable district known as The Shire.
