Real Estate in Mount Rainier

Real estate in Mount Rainier includes many historic mail-order homes constructed in beautiful Craftsman, Farmhouse, Cape Cod and Victorian styles. 

Many of these homes are well-kept or even fully restored, making excellent character pieces with tremendous curb appeal. As with many older homes, they have a set of similar features, like wood molding and board details, separate rooms, and overall smaller sizes. In return for the cozier and less expansive interiors, you get a generously sized yard with large mature trees, and long setbacks from the quiet green streets.

There’s also a portion of beautiful red brick homes at Mount Rainier’s western corner, and a large number of homes in the area have solar panels installed.

In the north and west part of the community there are a number of apartment complexes like Kaywood Gardens, Queens Manor Gardens, Rainier Manor, Arundel, and Queenstown.
