You have such exacting conditions and specifications that I think you should really work with your local professionally trained nursery professional to try to come up with something that would fit the bill. (Your county extension might also have some suggestions.) In addition to woody plants you might also consider vines -- sometimes a good looking trellis can provide the right dimensions and "look" for a spot. Best of luck with your selection process!
