Black Mountain – A Delectable Piece Of Asia!
What’s your idea of a perfect setting for an ideal home?
Would it have to be in a part of the world where there is sunshine all year round. A glorious tropical environment snapped right out of a storybook. A place where you can have all the creature comforts within your reach. A home that you will never want to leave!
Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, you have found your perfect spot in the world! It is located right on the multi-award-winning Black Mountain Golf Club in the Royal City of Hua Hin in Thailand.
It was always the vision of the owner/developer of Black Mountain, Swedish entrepreneur Stig Notlov to create a community in Thailand that would be perfectly suited for people seeking either a permanent home or a vacation home set on rolling greens and surrounded by mountains. More than a decade later, Black Mountain has matured into one of the finest golf communities in Asia.
With a well-knit community of residents already living at Black Mountain, Notlov decided to add another enclave of exclusive homes designed specially for those with exquisite taste for a life-style of serenity mixed with world class golf.
The latest edition to the homes at Black Mountain has been named North Point – this is very appropriate given the fact that the parcel of land is located at the highest point on the golf property and it provides a sweeping panoramic view of the stunning surrounding vista.
“Because of the prime location of North Point, this tract of land is being reserved exclusively for our villas,” according to Harald Elisson, managing director of Black Mountain Golf Club.
The villas are three-storey structures with four rooms and each purchase will come complete with two life-time memberships to the golf club.
“We have designed the homes at North Point to be spacious and to take optimum advantage of the surroundings which are both natural and specially landscaped to fit in with our plans for gracious living,” Elisson explained.
The villas at North Point are being complimented with two-storey twin-houses that are sited along the West Course, the newest part of the 27-hole spread of Black Mountain.
“Like the villas, the twin-houses will also come with four rooms and two life-time golf club memberships,” Elisson pointed out.
The villas are priced at US$1.2 million (approximate) and the twin-houses will be sold at US$600,000 (approximate).
Commenting on the life-time golf club membership Elisson said, “We want golf to be one of the bonding factors of living in Black Mountain because this is what has made Black Mountain the most desired golfing community in Asia.”
Bookings for North Point are now open and interested parties are welcome to contact Black Mountain to discuss their intentions.
Please contact: email@example.com
We stand ready to make your dream come true in Black Mountain. The very best golf community in all of Asia!

Denmark’s Thorbjorn Olesen finished fourth to move ahead of England’s Ian Poulter in the race to qualify automatically for Europe’s Ryder Cup team.
