Hello all! I am attempting to write a fanfic and I have a quick question about the architecture of a regency era house, in particular, pemberley. Where would the servants sleep? If there was a scream in a room on a ground floor, is there a chance anyone (including Darcy/Elizabeth) would hear it? I know it's a little strange, but I appreciate all the answers!!!11/9/2017 #1
I'm sooooo happy you're writing an story! In Regency era houses, servants slept in a place like basement, lower that the first floor. And hearing the scream depends on the size of the house you have in mind, for example, i always use Chatsworth House for Pemberley, which an scream will definitely be heard there.

May I suggest also looking in "Regency Encyclopedia"
