- Great Stanmore Rectory, Middlesex (1725).
- Houses in Brook Street, London (1725–29).
- Houses in St James's Square, London (1726–8), including No. 4, the Naval & Military Club and a former home of Nancy Astor from 1912 to 1942.
- Palace-fronted buildings for the 1st Duke of Chandos in Grosvenor Square, London (c1728–30, now demolished).
- Goodman's Fields Theatre, Ayliffe Street, Whitechapel, London (opened October 1732, demolished in 1746).
- Theatre Royal, now the location of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London (opened December 1732, destroyed by fire 1808).

Unfortunately, much of Shepherd's architectural work has been demolished, but perhaps his greatest legacy of the eponymous Shepherd Market, which is now a highly desirable location.
