Ficus macrophylla

Question: Ficus macrophylla

Hi, I was given a ficus macrophylla of about 2 meters with a trunk of 15cm of section .. it is a wonderful plant that I know how to become colossal in size ... I don't have too much space so I was wondering if 20 meters away from the house were enough .. thanks in advance for the answer ..
