Reduced: Massive Ashram-Like Retreat With Bulletproof Windows
When the word “mountain” is used to name an estate, you’d hope the place lives up to its grand title. In the case of the 16,000-square-foot Harmony Mountain, its moniker is a perfect fit.
Entering through a gate designed by sculptor Bryan Tedrick, this wellness-inspired residence gives more the impression of luxury retreat than a single-family home. Indeed, the property was designed to work as either house or spa, and Feng Shui gurus and Vastu Shastra experts were consulted during its creation.
Features possibly resulting from this collaboration include a private meditation room, zen garden, use of earth-friendly materials, and Japanese garden stone hot tub. This and a distance from city life make for a most soothing abode (it’s a two-hour drive from Philadelphia, but just 40 minutes if you have a helicopter — as the brochure notes).
Inside, breathing comes easy thanks to a air-purification system…but also in a figurative sense: the master suite has bulletproof glass windows and deadbolt security system that seals doors at the press of a button. Additionally, the interior boasts several paintings by well-known artists that are included in the sale of the home. An 8-chair home theater with soundproof walls is also inside the home.
Outdoor bonuses include a deep-earth natural well, a 400-square-foot dog run with security-enhanced doggy door, and an infinity-edge swimming pool. A heated footpath leads to the Japanese garden hot tub.
But its most impressive point? Killer long-distance views that might not have been possible had it not been built atop the highest point in Lackawanna County.
The home’s price was just reduced significantly.
