Shepherd Park is Almost Silver Spring

Bordered by neighboring Silver Spring, Shepherd Park offers yet another option for buyers searching for a new place to call home in Northwest DC. Full of a mix of home styles, you’ll commonly find everything from Colonials and Tudors to split-levels, farmhouses, Ramblers, and even some Sears bungalows in the neighborhood.

The homes of Shepherd Park sit alongside tree-lined streets, with single-family detached and semi-detached homes for buyers to consider. In fact, many of the residential streets themselves are descriptive of their surroundings, as they’re commonly named after flowers, trees, and shrubs.

This well-maintained neighborhood generally offers large homes, large lots, and mature landscaping. Many of the homes were constructed in the 1920s and 1930s. While close enough to the city, living in Shepherd Park also has suburban advantages. 

Georgia Avenue is the closest commercial corridor to the homes of Shepherd Park, but living so close to Silver Spring means you never have to venture too far for shopping, dining, and more. Because the neighborhood sits just to the north of the old Walter Reed Army Medical Campus, the revitalized, mixed-use area also means other nearby retail offerings to choose from, including a new Whole Foods Market, and well more than 100,000 square feet of additional retail, office, medical, and recreational space.

The neighborhood of Shepherd Park also sits conveniently close to Rock Creek Park. Packed with hiking and biking trails, the park is home to a Nature Center, a tennis center, a golf course, and picnic space. In addition, Rock Creek Park serves as home to the National Zoo, a horse center, boat rentals, and the historic Old Stone House.

In addition, the Silver Spring Metro is simply a short distance away from most of the homes of Shepherd Park. Local residents can also catch one of the buses that run up Georgia Avenue or 16th Street.
