Tolstoy, these old places have lovely high ceilings,i'm now a peabody dweller and they have put a false ceiling in with some kind of soundproofing involved,does make a difference and the ceilings are still more then adequately high.
In Devon mansions all they did was lay felted boards directly onto the existing flooring.
