Serenity Rediscovered...Stoneledge Properties Breaks Ground at Le Jardin


Stoneledge Properties Breaks Ground at Le Jardin

On Thursday, June 8th at 9 a.m. Stoneledge Properties, a Greenville-based development and custom home building company broke ground at the newest addition to their portfolio: Le Jardin. This 55-acre, 64 home site, exclusive gated community is located on the East Side of Greenville. The development is a rare opportunity for future property owners to experience serenity rediscovered. The community is designated as the first solar-encouraged luxury community in the state of South Carolina via their partnership with CertainTeed.

Featuring its Apollo II Solar Shingles as part of this development, CertainTeed Solar kicked off its new partnership with Stoneledge and is “proud to support this exciting project geared toward green living,” says Mark Stancroff, director of CertainTeed Solar. “Simplistic, aesthetically pleasing, and efficient, the Apollo II system generates clean power while keeping homes safe from water intrusion,” Stancroff stated. The Apollo II system is the pinnacle of roof-integrated energy production, using the proven technology of high-efficiency mono crystalline silicon solar cells, designed and produced in the US. The Apollo II system is a versatile solution for power and aesthetics when installed directly on a new or existing asphalt shingle roof. The all-black solar shingle with a low profile visually blends into your roof and provides a clean look which a standard rack-mounted system cannot match. All CertainTeed Solar products are available nationwide. For more information, visit

Le Jardin affords residents space to enjoy a scenic, private community with a neighborly focused experience as lots range from +/- .4 to one acre. Privacy is paramount, as the gated community allows guests and residents to experience a picturesque, wooded drive, creating a community where architectural integrity and consistency are as important as privacy and space for all. “We have been dreaming of a property like this for eight to ten years now,” says Chris Bailey, builder and founder of Stoneledge Properties. “When we found it, we knew it was a truly rare opportunity for us to create something special for homeowners in the Upstate.” Singularly-controlled, professional architectural standards will ensure the aesthetic vision of Le Jardin, which will primarily focus on the French Eclectic and English Tudor influences; however, each residence will maintain the unique individuality of its owner.

Rick Danner, Mayor of Greer, had this to say about the exclusive, innovative luxury development:

“This is an exciting day for both Le Jardin and the city of Greer. We are approaching pre-recession construction numbers in the city and I’m not sure that any residential project has brought the anticipation that Le Jardin has. Developers called it the perfect property and we think it is the perfect location. We look forward to following the construction and introducing homeowners to the finest quality of life in the upstate—right here in the city of Greer.”

Located only minutes from Pelham Medical Center (formerly The Village at Pelham) and the upcoming Gibbs Cancer Center & Research Institute, five minutes from Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport, and moments from BMW and Michelin North America, Le Jardin will feature amenities including walking trails, parks, common spaces, wooded areas with mature hardwoods and streams, and a renewable power resource. Lot options will include flat, wooded, and basement lots, affording future residents flexibility for the experience they so desire.



Stoneledge Properties’ roots in the development and custom home industry began in 1989 with Chris Bailey, builder and founder, alongside his wife, Meranda. Chris leads the building process and the entire Stoneledge team. Meranda Bailey, head of design, guides each property owner through the process of turning their dream home in to a polished reality.
