    On a home that big a 4 pitch would look good.
    That will give you about 96" of headroom in the attic under the ridge.

    Don't go below a 4/12 pitch.

    Suggest you lay out a gable end on a piece of paper (to scale) and decide for yourself whether 4/12 or 6/12 would look better.

    I find this method to be a real eye-opener sometimes (results can sometimes be surprising).
