Ha! Ha! The headline said Giant Bay Tree. It's only 10ft high. They go up much, much higher than that.
Prune it down as much as you want, it will spring up again, but I might take the opportunity to move it further from the house, it really is too close unless you keep it strictly under control.
I would not cut it off at 7ft high, it will look like a lollipop. Not a good look! Cut it nearly to the ground.
