If cut down from bottom they will hit the house. Also access to the yard is limited by a 4 foot wide gate on brick columns. Do you know of any equipment that might be able to get through the gate i.e. a small crane?

I suggest you contact a certified arborist for help with this project and, perhaps, an equipment leasing company who could advise you about what will work. Perhaps this article will provide some tips: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/tgen/moving-mature-trees.htm
