About the Property

One bedroom, one bath condo with upstairs loft & 40' vaulted ceiling,

The new renovated condo is located atop one of the highest mountain peaks in eastern Northern America... an 1,100 square foot one bedroom one bath condo with an upstairs loft, 40 foot vaulted ceilings, contemporary furniture, high end finish outs, custom paint, and a view that has to be seen to be believed. With only two units occupied in the building (of 12), and nobody else on the top floor, this is an extremely quiet and private area, ideal for romance or rejuvination.

In addition to the one bedroom, there is a single mattress upstairs in the loft -- and in a pinch, a guest can sleep on the oversized couch downstairs.

The upstairs loft features dim-able turkish lamps, soft rugs and pillows for lounging. There's an executive desk/chair, a brother laser printer, and extraordinarily inspiring view--many people come here to finish projects. In addition, there is a meditation corner, with soft blankets and pillows for seating, and an MP3 player with several meditations if you want to learn. A single mattress with bedding is stored in the closet.


It sits upon the grounds of The Art of Living Retreat Center, which (for extra charge) offers dining, Ayurvedic Spa services, yoga and meditation classes, hiking, and more.

You can have a lot of privacy, as only two of the 12 units in this building are currently occupied. Or, if you choose, you can explore the retreat center community a bit and socialize. If you don't want to cook or drive into town, the Art Of Living Retreat Center dining hall serves three delicious vegetarian buffet meals a day for around 15-20$ It's the big yellow building two doors down.

Year Purchased: 2012

About: I purchased this condominium during a four year hiatus from the corporate world, where I embarked on a bucket list adventure to visit the most sacred places on the planet, acquire the knowledge. From the Himalayas and the Ganges River to Machu Picchu, to Kauai, Joshua Tree, and The Black journey eventually led me to Heavenly Mountain, in Boone, NC. Yes, Boone, North Carolina. The Blue Ridge Mountains--and this area in particular -- are considered to be among the most ancient and sacred mountains on earth. This condo served as my sanctuary, where I was able to write, do volunteer work, connect with nature and discover a deeper sense of purpose for the next chapter of my life. Mission accomplished! To say that I enjoyed my time here would be a massive understatement. It is my pleasure to pay it forward and share this extraordinary place with you. Not because I have because I believe this condominium, this mountain are here for the purpose of supporting individuals on their journey of growth, rejuvenation, rest, and relaxation. I have recently relocated to Dallas, TX, where I am a corporate and life trainer. I really wanted to live closer to my mother, who inspires me daily. I am a live music nut, still seek out the best summer music and yoga festivals. Other passions include border collies, Thai and Indian cuisine, fly fishing, mountain biking, the Denver Broncos, John Steinbeck, Tony Robbins, the Allman Brothers, Tom Petty, Neil Young, Van Morrison, Krishna Das, The Head and the Heart, and (obviously) the ancient wisdom teachings of the East, including Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Yogananda, Eckart Tolle and Rod Stryker. (my library is kept stocked for your enjoyment) I return to Boone frequently to rest, rejuvenate and recharge the batteries.

Why Boone, NC, USA:
I believe in the mission of the art of living, which is one of the largest and most generous global non-profit, humanitarian efforts in the world. From programs for returning military veterans in the US, to prison reform, corporate trainings, youth and women's empowerment....I could fill this entire page with the GOOD they are doing. Suffice it to say, they set up shop on this mountain top. And are extremely humble, kind, and welcoming folks.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
If you like to hike, or just go for walks, I have five different ones I can direct you the casual stroll, to the advanced downhill, with waterfall cliff dives. There is a map on the kitchen counter with directions, and FAQs. The Blue Heaven Spa is a three minute ride down the road. with full spa services and treatments. Call ahead, as they get busy on weekends. This is one of only a handful of authentic Aryuvedic spas in the nation, with an amazing array of traditional treatments. Also, they have a steam room and fitness center. Visitors always seem to find what they are looking for. I get a lot of compliments on my the loft office, with laser printer. The space seems to inspire reflection. I get an equal number of compliments on the morning sunrises, the hiking trails, and just lounging or enjoying meals on the patio furniture.
