The high ceilings of Victorian homes, like other design elements, were another way for guests to see affluence. High ceilings created a dramatic contrast to the low-ceilinged cottages and homes associated with more basic abodes, creating a large setting. They also allowed for more light and air inside the house.
High ceilings are not unique to Victorian houses. Many modern houses built after World War II also have high ceilings. However, because these buildings are usually constructed out of concrete or some other durable material, they often last for many generations beyond their wooden predecessors.
The height of a room's ceiling is one factor among many that determine how much air there is in an area. Rooms with high ceilings will tend to be larger than those with lower ceilings. This is because there is less distance between the floor and the roof above. More space means more air.
Rooms with low ceilings can become stuffy even in the summer due to all of the furniture and activities near the ground blocking out any natural ventilation. People who live in these rooms may need to open a window or two during hot summers to get a breeze flowing through the house.
Victorian houses had special vents called "hunts" installed in each bedroom. The hunts were designed to bring fresh air into the room during the night so that everyone could breathe easier.

According to Charlie Cheever of quora.com, "technically, realtors define mansions as residences with at least 8,000 square feet of floor space." Merriam-definition Webster's is less specific, noting that a mansion is "a large and spectacular residence: the enormous house of a wealthy person." While most people think of a mansion as a very big house, that's not actually part of its definition. The American Heritage Dictionary defines it as "a large, luxurious building"; while The Random House Dictionary says it is "an impressive building": both definitions include a requirement that the building be large.
In reality, there is no single correct answer to this question. A mansion can be any size from a house of modest proportions to an estate with many rooms and/or acres of land.
Some cities have limits on the size of houses built on lot lines, but these are usually based on local regulations rather than any official definition. In fact, in some areas of California, homes over 4,500 square feet are allowed!
In general, if you need a house to live in it, then it's a mansion. There are many other factors to consider beyond size, such as architecture, amenities, location, etc., but only you can decide how big you want your home to be.
