    Yes, but they mean two different things.

    A describes how she took him to her house -- by going down the street.

    B indicates the location of her house.

    Both are correct. The first emphasizes leading him down the street whereas the second emphasizes leading him to her house. In the latter, down the street is incidental to the main idea (to her house).
