Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback.

“Safehouse” is a concrete noun, i.e., something that can be detected with one or more of the senses. Anything that is a state (in the sense that “state” is used in the definition) is an abstract noun, something that has no physical existence and that cannot be perceived with the five senses. “Safety,” the state of being safe or protected, is therefore also an abstract noun.

While it is theoretically possible for a noun with two discrete definitions to be either concrete or abstract (depending on which sense of the noun is used), it seems illogical that any single thing can be both sensorily perceptible and sensorily imperceptible.

Therefore, I disagree that “safehouse” should be added as an appropriate answer to that definition.
