1) I walked the three kilometers home from the station.

2) I walked the three kilometers to my/the office from home.

3) I walk the three kilometers to my/the office from home.

Why didn't you use "to" before "home" but used it before "office"?

Because the word 'home' can function adverbially. The others can't. That's just one of the oddities of the language.

So the rule is applicable to this "Home" word only. Am I correct?

I got off the train and walked the three kilometers to another station from there. Is it correct?

Yes, but you don't need the" there. You could say:

I got off the train and walked three kilometers to another station.

Can I say "I get out of the auto rickshaw and walk the (I think "the" should not be used here. Am I correct?) a few meters home" or "I get out of the auto rickshaw and walk a few meters to my office"?
