Noted as one of the finest examples of Spanish Colonial Revival architecture in America, the 1925 Casa del Herrero, in January 2009, was designated a National Historic Landmark. Designed by George Washington Smith for the Steedman family, the 11-acre estate offers a glimpse of Montecito in the 1930’s. Furnished in 14th -18th century Spanish antiques, the home is surrounded by extensive Moorish-styled gardens.
