Old Willowbank

Old Willowbank takes you back half a century to simpler times. Founded by some independent souls in the late 1940s, it was intended as a place where academic characters could tend their half-acre of grapes and their ponies in the morning and enjoy a cocktail with their neighbors at sundown without having to mix it up with those Davis sorts. The streets have curves, the trees deserve that overused attribute “majestic”, the lots are really large, and there are no sidewalks. Fabulously remodeled, or even new homes sit among original1950s ranch houses. Dogs are walked, neighbors are friendly, block parties are held, the neighborhood bands together and gets hot when there is talk of development across Montgomery Rd. Prices vary…homes wanting a lift can be had for reasonable prices. Others may be expensive. It is a pretty seductive part of town…
