Located in the northwest quadrant of DC — north of Walter Reed Army Medical Center between Georgia Avenue and Rock Creek Park, and include the neighborhoods between 16th Street and Rock Creek Park that are also known as Colonial Village and North Portal Estates. It’s a thriving, friendly, diverse and historic neighborhood with many long-time residents and many recent arrivals, but everyone shares a love for our beautiful neighborhood, with its abundance of trees and gardens and great variety of houses.
Shepherd Park was founded in the 19th century when the District’s territorial governor, Alexander “Boss” Shepherd, built a summer mansion here. Since then, it has grown into a neighborhood that celebrates its diversity and friendliness. Shepherd Park has many unique and convenient characteristics, and is home to many families who have children attending our excellent local school, Shepherd Elementary, as well as families whose children attend one of the local private schools and now the new D.C. International School – which opened Fall 2017.
Residents here speak proudly of living with neighbors of all races, earning Shepherd Park its informal slogan of “The Garden of Diversity” and there is also the The Shepherd Park Citizens Association, a membership organization servicing residents of Shepherd Park, Colonial Village and North Portal Estates. The association’s mission is to improve the quality of life for Shepherd Park residents.
Within this area, there are families that have lived in the neighborhood for multiple generations, but in recent years, Shepherd Park has become a preferred destination for young families. They have moved in and are now living alongside the older inhabitants of the area.
Purchasing a home here, you would be looking at an average of $725,000 and homes can have sold for as high as $1.5M.
An upcoming attraction is the now underway Redevelopment of the Walter Reed Army Medical Center, a project that is expected to continue for the next couple of years.
The first new homes – Georgia Row – will be available Spring 2018. The unique and innovative townhome-style residences of Georgia Row at Walter Reed make a resounding statement in the northern Washington, D.C. corridor.
