In brief: See below

The systolic blood pressure is considered elevated (at rest) if it's 140 mmHg or greater until age 59.
At age 60, the systolic blood pressure is considered elevated of it is 150 mmHg or greater. There is no general average for patients who have hypertension, but you can trend your individual average blood pressure.
