House is among the most important concerns with which human beings has continuously been involved and appropriate solutions for its relevant problems has sought for. In addition to being a physical structure to be used by a family, a house includes all the public services and facilities required for promoting human life style, so residents must have sure long term tenure of it. Regardless of its physical size and the natural and climate rules, housing is affected by cultural factors, social beliefs, and spiritual requirements in human life that enrich one’s life. In this regard, we examined housing situation from the standpoint of villagers. The main goal in this paper is to investigate the level of attention to sustainable housing pattern components, such as continuity, efficiency, compatibility, dynamism, intuitive utility, stability, and integrity. We used an analytic-descriptive approach, but the quantitative, i.e. statistical, approach was also used in analyzing data. In the present study, the data were gathered by questionnaires the in three categories of rural population of Mazandaran Province, namely coastal, foothills and mountainous populations. Sample size was determined by Cochran’s formula as 465. Results show that the average level of attention to sustainability of housing in coastal villages is the best, by an average sustainability level of 1.71, compared to mountainous villages with average sustainability level of 1.55 and foothill villages with average sustainability level of 1.53. Total average sustainability level in these villages is 1.54, which indicates a low level of sustainability of housing in Mazandaran Province.
