Who was I?

Submit Answers in Comments (below). Answers will not be revealed until a winner is selected.

I sure was a lovely mansion, don’t you agree? Some notable folks lived here, but I will not ask you to provide their names, though many of you would probably know offhand. I’m also not going to request you provide my location, since developers had the nerve to demolish me. Aargh! However, I am going to insist you provide my name to win the contest; in other words – Who was I?
