Justin T. Gellerson/For The Washington PostBuy PhotoBeverly Perry’s reason for moving to Mount Rainier, a bedroom community in Prince George’s County outside the District, might not be dreamy and idyllic.But in the 17 years since she moved to her house on 37th Street, Perry, a retired federal contractor with the General Services Administration, has grown quite fond of the community.”I moved here because I couldn’t afford to live in Takoma Park,” said Perry, as she let out a belly laugh.She didn’t realize it at the time, she said, but Mount Rainier has many of the qualities that attracted her to Takoma Park trails and park space, established neighborhoods, and proximity to stores and businesses. And with real estate a fraction of the price of many houses in Takoma Park, Mount Rainier turned out to be a diamond in the rough that’s grown more valuable after nearly two decades, she said.”I live on a street with six houses and when I look out my back yard I don’t see anything but woods,” Perry said. “I love it because since my neighborhood is historic, I won’t wake up one day and find myself staring at a massive development,” said Perry, who lives in a 925 square foot, three bedroom, two bathroom Colonial that was built in 1923.The community has served as a magnet for artists, thanks to its designation as a Gateway Arts District, a distinction that provides housing incentives for artists who live and work there, Anderson said. but prefer a little more land and space,” Anderson said. “A number of investments the city made, from a development standpoint, are beginning to pay off as more shops and restaurants open and help attract more people.”The community is a historic area with a number of mail order houses from the Sears, Roebuck and Co. catalogue and Craftsman style homes, a designation that helps combat overdevelopment and high density, two things that can turn away potential buyers, Anderson added.[In Arlington, a neighborhood lures back the people who grew up there]Janet Thomas, who moved to the Washington area from Texas in 1986, said she discovered the town by chance during a drive. Mount Rainier’s small town vibe reminded Thomas of her home town of Prairie View and she said she thought, “If I ever buy a house I want to live here.”A few years later, whenThomas was ready to purchase a house, the first neighborhood she searched was Mount Rainier, she said.”When I first moved here, we were kind of off the beaten path,” said Thomas, who lives in a 750 square foot, two bedroom, two bathroom 1920s Sears, Roebuck and Co. catalogue house on 37th Street.Dawn Sims, 34, who’s lived in Mount Rainier since childhood, said she hasn’t considered living anyplace else and is attracted to the community’s diversity.”The cultural diversity in Mount Rainier is a great asset,” said Sims, who lives in a 1,000 square foot, three bedroom, one bathroom, two level brick house on Wallace Road.”Other neighborhoods in the area are just too segregated,” she said. line to the west.Mount Rainier, founded as a streetcar suburb of the District, benefits from historic status and being an arts district.
