Thank you for your Question.

Since your father gave the house to your brother, as his own, then he (your brother) is the sole and legal owner of the house.
Your brother is not obliged to share the property with his siblings. But if he is willing to share it, the it’s entirely up to him.

Hope this helps,
Kind regards
