To help you best is to help you identify what you already have before you. The tone of the sentence is now neutral. Even the slightest changes will change the tone to positive or negative.
Tall: some synonyms are alpine, lanky, sizable.
Woman: this has fewer synonyms because it is so specific, but some are female, matron, gentlewoman, virgin, personage.
Came: this, of course, is the past tense of come and means to appear; to come into view or range; to approach; to arrive; or to move toward or into. These meanings contain synonymous phrases. Other synonyms are breeze in, close in, draw near.
House: some synonyms for this are abode, castle, coop.
There are many synonyms for some of these words, like "house," at thesaurus.com, and not so many for others. One caution about synonyms, though: each has their own shade of meaning and, despite what some may indicate, cannot all be used interchangeably! Choose with care: check definitions and any usage notes.
For a brief sample from what's here, a more positive tone might be struck with the words alpine, breeze in, and abode. A more negative tone might be struck with the words personage, close in and coop.
