Cranes Pond and the Woods at Stonehedge were designed to fit into the environment.

  • 50% of the land area was conserved as open space, forever set aside to benefit nature.
  • As such, these communities provide for great neighborhoods as well as for habitat for the native plants and animals.
  • This approach to environmental design is unique to Stonehedge Development.
    • No other area developers do as much to preserve the environment, conserve natural resources, protect ground and surface water, and provide for wildlife in our developments.
    • We don’t push nature out, we design ways to live in it.
  • Cranes Pond is a 70 acre open space development
    • The neighborhood was designed specifically to limit its impact on carbon footprints, to protect ground and surface water, and to provide habitat for wildlife.
    • All homes are built to be energy star compliant
