It's also a public place, not a private residence.

Although obviously wealthy, the person who built the place certainly was not world famous.

I get that fame is a relative term. Is it a recognizable name and did they live here, rather than just build it?

It was never intended to be a private residence, so if the the builder in the 1700's lived there, it doesn't state that on their website. No, I wouldn't say he had a recognizable name.

The place is not named after the builder.
