The community of Seven Lakes is known for its midcentury architecture but it also has many other appealing features. For instance, there is a beautiful 18 hole executive golf course that is 2712 yards long. And there are seven lakes! Did you know that this was one of Dwight Eisenhower’s favorite courses to play and he got a hole in one on hole #4!
Richard Harrison is the architect behind the residences at Seven Lakes Country Club. In 1952, along with Donald Wexler, Harrison set up Wexler & Harrison. Wexler and Harrison body of work is significant in the Palm Springs area. In addition to residential homes, their work also includes banks, offices, and the Palm Springs open-air airport.
The developers built one, two and three bedroom condominiums, and a “two and a den.” The one bedroom homes were the least popular, and almost as costly to construct as the two bedrooms so they were discontinued early on.
Arthur Elrod, Jr. is the interior designer who oversaw the furnishing of the first models at Seven Lakes.
