we had amalanchier - june berries in our woods back home. they always grew in groves - and it was heavenly to walk under them when they were blooming in spring. If I planted them, I think I would plant them that way in a little grove off to themselves.

as an owner of an historic house - I would keep trees away from the house. Roots are problems, but also fruit trees attract critters that you do not want in your house.

they are truly lovely trees.
