Look at the room beyond the stair hall to see the original height of the windows. It is the windows that have been raised, rather than the ceilings lowered. There is a view of the west side of the house, which shows both the tall windows and the standard height windows that appear to be normal height on the north entrance fa├žade. They could be original, but I doubt it. The Google aerial view indicates a considerable addition on the south side.

Most unusual. Then, the floor plates had to be modified, I guess, at the perimeter. Does any of that show in second-floor bedrooms ? All of this, to hide the curtain rods ?
