As such, buyers who are interested in new construction will find that many of the things they love about new homes can be found in this neighborhood too. It is a testament to the quality of the neighborhood that so many buyers are willing to spend time upgrading their homes to the standard they want rather than moving into a new home in a different community that is already finished to their standards. Upgrades to old homes in the community often include installing more energy efficient windows, refacing the kitchen, and refreshing the flooring. Many of the homes in Shepherd Forest feature exceptionally large windows that allow plenty of natural light to spill into the living spaces.

For home owners that means that they have a great space where they can play fetch with their dog or barbecue a thick-cut of steak.
