The range depends on a lot of things. Antenna size and gain, the materials used to construct your residence, and aany local phenomenon that might create EM interference.
Under ideal conditions, you can probably expect around 100 yards. Under more realistic conditions, 50-100 feet for a reliable signal.
If you have lead in the paint or lots of steel in the frame of your domicile, or maybe there's a power line running over your house, anything that will cause EM interference will greatly reduce your range.
