Is the sentence below correct? If so, what does it mean?

She went over his house.

Thank you.

@paok1970,
The sentence is only correct if she is flying.

The correct sentence would be: She went over to his house.

It means she went to his house. It could be for a visit, to talk, to return something or to pick something up.

@Sturgis,
Why "She went over to his house" and not just "She went to his house"? In other words, what is the difference between "to go to a place" and "to go OVER to a place"?

Thanks again for your kind help.

@paok1970,
You could say "She went to his house".

You cannot use your original sentence, "She went over his house.", unless as Sturgis says, she was flying.
