abode

Here is my best explanation:

'home' is the definition.

('abode' can be a synonym of 'home')

'away at first person finally came' is the subsidiary indication.

'at first' indicates taking the first letters.

'person' becomes 'bod' (I've seen this in other clues**).

'finally' indicates one should take the final letters.

The initial letter of 'away' is 'a'.

The last letter of 'came' is 'e'.

'a'+'bod'+'e'='abode'
