Shepherd Park Real Estate

Shepherd Park is a tight-knit community located off 16th Street in the upper Northwestern quadrant of Washington DC.  The neighborhood is popular with families because of its collection of homes with front lawns, easy accessibility to Downtown and quality schools.  The neighborhood is zoned for some of the most popular public schools in the District, including Shepherd Elementary, Deal Middle School, and Wilson High School. 

The housing stock is dominated by single-family Colonial revival homes as well as Mid-century Modern and Tudor residences lining the wooded streets.  The community takes its name from Alexander “Boss” Shepherd, a former governor of the District who chose the verdant land as the site of his summer vacation home. While the mansion was demolished in the early 1900s, the streets still retain names reminiscent of a summer garden, including Juniper, Hemlock, and Locust.  Read more about Shepherd Park real estate.
