I think they grow to about 100 feet. 4 of mine are about 30 feet fronm the house and although it's ok now I think in time that will be too close.
I wouldn't do it if I were you, there are so many attractive small and productive trees suitable for a garden that to introduce something so big and only maybe producing something edible seems like a waste of garden space. I'm lucky with some of my cherries but wild ones can be a bit sour (or so I'm told)
