While the mountains in Minecraft may seem inhospitable, they make great building sites for future homes.
The Minecraft community has shared a lot of great mountain house designs. They can be great inspiration or can even be recreated block by block.
Regardless of what a player decides to do, there are more than a few mountain home designs worth considering. Even after “The Wild Update” of version 1.19, players can pick from the trash when it comes to the right home design for them.
Below, players can find a list of some of the best mountain house options in Minecraft after the release of The Wild Update.

Underwater Mountain House, Modern Mountain Mansion and 5 other top rated mountain house designs for Minecraft version 1.19
1) Inner mountain house
This Minecraft house keeps traveling around the mountain at a minimum. The entire house is built inside the mountain, with modular rooms and large glass panels to see outside. Inside is everything a player could need, including survival essentials like crafting blocks and storage chests.
The house is also easily accessible from the foot of the mountain, ensuring that players won’t have to cross walkways or scaffolding to get to their home.
2) Hanging Mountain House
If gamers want an unconventional home design in Minecraft, this certainly fits the bill. The house starts on the inside of the mountain but branches out and hangs down.
While it may seem a bit cramped, this house is surprisingly spacious and has everything a player needs in Survival mode. This outward-facing design also allows for expansion if players want it, especially considering the laws of gravity don’t apply to many building blocks in Minecraft.
3) Seamount House
Although mountain houses in Minecraft are often built towards peaks, this design takes an alternate path. Specifically, this house is built at the base of a mountain that is submerged under water. It’s a smaller design, but it’s also fairly easy to build, thanks to its low material cost.
The glass panels at one end of the house face the bottom of the sea, which can be a good view. This is especially true if players build this house in a warm ocean, as there are likely to be more than a few aquatic mobs swimming around.
4) Mountain town house
When building a house on a mountain, why stop at one? Minecraft players can use this build to bring their friends.
Each house is similar in size to a town house, and they are aligned along the side of a mountain. Players who place some job blocks on buildings can even bring some villagers to live there.
Of course, getting them there can be a bit tricky, but it’s far from impossible. Just be careful where you step, as some of these houses don’t exactly have railings.
5) Natural mountain house
Minecraft players who love extra greenery will love this design. It keeps the faith of traditional inland mountain homes, but features an overgrowth of vines and leaf blocks to accent the entryway.
The house even has a small fishing pond complete with water lilies. It might not even be a bad idea to raise a frog or two in this still pond.
Of course, if players don’t like the new Minecraft 1.19 mob, they might want to continue fishing or keeping a small stock of fish or axolotl mobs.
6) Modern Mountain Mansion
Modern mansions aren’t cheap to build, but they look spectacular when they’re finished. This construction is a perfect example of that, and it stands right on the side of a mountain.
The views that players can capture from the porches of this mansion are gorgeous. There’s even a nice body of water below for a player’s fishing or swimming needs.
Complete with a unique geometric design and even an outdoor fireplace, this house design can be a long-term option for players who manage to complete it.
7) Mountain house with waterfall
For gamers who want a nice and functional home, this design is a complete package. The materials aren’t the easiest to come by, but players can’t argue with the results.
The water flows endlessly inside the glass window panes, providing vision but still offering a comforting sound of rushing water. The entrance is placed at the base of the mountain for easy access as well.
This is arguably one of the longest housing projects in version 1.19, but it’s worth every block invested.
