There was a plant in the front yard of a house that I used to live at which grew really tall and provided good privacy. I'm attaching a couple pics to help see if anyone can identify it.

In the pics it is the three plants in the middle. They had grown up to my second story window, but in this picture they had cut them back to about half their height.

Appreciate anyones help!

Hard to tell without close ups of the leaves but based on the second photo with new red leaves, a guess would be Red-Tipped Photinia (Photinia x fraseri)
It would help to let us know where this is located.

Kind of surprised someone would plant those in front of a window and on such a small space. Mine are probably 20 ft tall and at least 10 ft. wide at the top.

I guess it would depend on what's outside the window...

If you google Hedge Plant Fire, alot of different but similar options come up. Mine were huge bushes too.
