What maple to get? Small yard 10'x10'

I'm thinking to plant a maple in my front yard which is about 10' away from my house but no idea about what to get

I hope the maple can be:

1. Single trunk

2. Upright growth

3. Can reach about the height of two-story house

4. Orange-red color leaves in fall

Also I am worrying about if the roots will be so aggressive to cause damage. Or any special care to be taken to block the roots.

I live in Fremont CA (hot in summer) which is Zone 9. Front yard is to the east so I would say morning sun and afternoon shades.

Thanks in advance!
