Mensagem:  "I stepped up into my house..." 

This is possible but be aware that "up" would mean that you had to go uphill, go up stairs (up stairs, not upstairs), etc. to reach your house, and then you entered.  Possible?  Yes.  Confusing?  Yes.

To step up to = aproximar-se
He stepped up to the car.
To step up = subir
He stepped up the path.
