Shepherd Park Property Values
Shepherd Park has the look and feel of a suburban neighborhood and the convenience of being close to all the amenities a major city has to offer. The name of the area comes from Alexander Robey Shepherd, who lived there when he was governor of the then-Territory of DC from 1873-1874. His extensive nursery is also the reason why many streets in the neighborhood are named after flowers.
Real estate is dominated by detached single-family homes, including Tudors, colonials, and Spanish haciendas. There are also a handful of garden-style condos and apartment buildings. The neighborhood is home to the former Walter Reed Medical Center at its southern end. There are big plans in the future for these 3.1 million square feet of space, including turning it into a mixed-use commercial and residential area.
