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.

Main access routes for Mount Rainier include the Historic U.S. Highway 1 and Queens Chapel Road (Route 500), as well as a number of bus routes. Mount Rainier's neighbors include Brentwood to the northeast, Cottage City and Colmar Manor to the east, Woodridge and North Michigan Park to the south and west, and Avondale to the northwest.

Mount Rainier Amenities

Mount Rainier is known for its quiet atmosphere and historic homes, many of which were mail-order catalogue homes from the early to mid 20th century.

Much of Mount Rainier is designed as an official Historic Place. In addition to the historic homes that line its streets, there is also the intersection of Perry Street, Rhode Island Avenue (Highway 1), and 34th Street.
