For those interested in this topic, Melissa is correct. The Pumphreys have decided to put Willow Shade on the market. It is listed with Chip Schutte (Remax Roots). Hopefully a buyer emerges who is interested in the legacy of Willa Cather and/or the home's historical significance to the Shenandoah Valley region.

Unless mistaken, I don't believe so. I recently subscribed to 5 Bank Street and thought I would share the listing on social media. However, upon further reading under the photos it says "OFF MARKET." Zillow tends to post every bit of residential real estate out there, whether available or not. If not on the market, it will say so.

I'll keep a look out, if that should change, and will share on our NWCC social pages.

I thought somebody said in my presence while we were in Virginia that the house was about to go on the market, and this would seem to confirm it.

Subject: [5BANKSTREET] Willow Shade


One of my students sent me the following Zillow link to the Willow Shade property, which looks like it is on the market?
