Piano Meadows is high above Conifer and accessed through the Shiloh subdivision in the Richmond Hill area. This is a secluded community I like to call a hidden gem in the Rockies. Although the neighborhood feels as though it's miles from anywhere and on top of the world-- it is actually an easy drive of only a few miles to US highway 285.
This community is easily recognizable from most places in town by Riley Peak. Frequently referred to as Horse Tooth Mountain because of it's unique shape and has the odd characteristic of a large antenna between it's two peaks. This peak can be seen as far away as Evergreen and Piano Meadows sits just south (the other side) of what most people see.
The first homes in Piano Meadows were built in the 1970's and were modest weekend retreat styled cabins. But do to the magnificent views and large, prominent building sites homes here now can reach into the millions for a custom home on 40 acres overlooking Rampart Range and Pikes Peak.
There are a few different phases of Piano Meadows, with the original Piano Meadows subdivision comprising approximately 40 home sites, although there aren't half that many built out yet. In addition Piano Meadows Estates and neighboring Peak Estates is a relatively new subdivision which wraps around the mountain offering home sites of roughly 5 acres each. These are some beautiful Colorado home sites with broad meadows views, and expansive mountain views across Foxton Valley where Reynolds, Newton and Beaver Ranch open space parks are located.
Although Google maps shows a road connecting Piano Meadows with Conifer Meadows, through Piano Meadows Estates, it's important to know that this road is for a wildfire emergency escape route only. This road does not get winter maintenance!
Another spectacular area just south of Piano Meadows is Ropp Country Estates. These are 40 acre parcels with primarily south facing aspects (and remarkable views of Pikes Peak. These are some of the most compelling, secluded land parcels in the Conifer area.
I've written more about Piano Meadows and provided a map based home search and an interesting video with additional maps and photos at Conifer homes for sale in Piano Meadows.
