Gene Rubel Home


The Gene Rubel Home is located at 801 South McClelland Street (proceed south from the Coca Cola Bottling Company).

Built in 1928, this two-story Spanish Colonial home looks like a time-worn mission complete with second story balconies--inside and out. The burnt orange tile roof and wrought iron window coverings attached to the cream stucco exterior also add to the "mission" feeling. The current owner, Bob Weber, named the home Casa Encantada, which translated from Spanish means beautiful or enchanted home.

See this Santa Maria Times 2012 article about Mr. Rubel.
