Completed in 1965, Country Club Estates is a 30-unit condominium complex designed by the architectural firm of Jones & Emmons. The model unit was tastefully decorated by the renowned interior design company of Arthur Elrod and Associates. A September 1966 Palm Springs Life magazine article touts the “abundantly well-thought-out plans – for living and storage, for airy spaciousness and artful snugness.”
