Mensagem: 

    To me both, but if you are training about questions about description of things,

then what is the house like? you expect a detailed description of the house.

    "How is the house?" wouldn´t be so natural speaking, but depending on the context

could be used.  

     Again, I would favour "how is the house like?" to obtain a description of the house, okay?
