Yes, I like the look of that one

Winter flowering cherry - Prunus subhirtella 'autumnalis'

Very important, you can hide a low graft behind a small evergreen shrub.

The overall visual effect of the high graft resembles a medical condition,  maybe elephantiasis

 I love the grace of the flowering part. But, in maturity, the solid trunk of whatever it's grafted onto becomes disproportionately heavy looking. This spoils it for me. I've never seen a non-grafted one

 You need to set aside some good pods early on and let them mature on the vine til the the end of the season

Yours won't turn into mature, dried beans now, Sorry Birdy

3 acre blank slate with a river, spring and steep slope!

I'm not very good at visualising garden descriptions. Have you any photos?

I would suggest not willows, they sound in appropriate to the site and won't suck up water in the winter when it's wettest. 

There are places that can't be made into  a standard garden but have great scope as a nature reserve.
