(This upgraded home is on the quiet West 20th Street side of the historic O'Neill building.)

In 1887, proprietor Hugh O'Neill had a dream. The forward-thinking businessman envisioned a grand, handsome, block-long department store on a stretch of Sixth Avenue between 20th and 21st Streets +éGÇô a remarkable destination that would set the standard for a new shopping district. O+éGÇÖNeill+éGÇÖs dream was realized as an attractive, cast iron, formidable emporium with a unique pair of large, iconic beehive domes on both ends. Hugh O+éGÇÖNeill+éGÇÖs Department Store was known for its grand scale, its convenient location, its soaring ceilings, its impressive entry, its good service, and its treasured second floor. Some things never change . Stunningly converted to loft condominiums, the O+éGÇÖNeill Lofts is now known for a supreme locale, stunning architecture, friendly service, and stupendous scale -- particularly on its coveted second floor. Formerly host to the Ladies Finery department of Hugh O+éGÇÖNeill+éGÇÖs Market, this easy-to-love, impressive second floor residence boasts 13+éGÇÖ-9+éGÇ¥ ceilings (extra high on floor 2), and bright, oversized, South-facing, city-quiet windows. The built-for-entertaining living room is open to the dining area, and is a casually elegant, feel-good space with handsome wainscoting +éGÇô a generously-scaled room ideal for lounging and relaxing. Its cook+éGÇÖs kitchen boasts premium appliances by Viking and Subzero, and an abundance of gorgeous stone counters and designer cabinetry. The Master Suite is worthy of the name -- large and lovely -- quiet and bright. With the same soaring ceilings found in the rest of this luxurious home, with a winning floor-to-ceiling, custom walk-in closet, and with an en-suite marble bath with soaking tub, separate shower, and dual sinks, this bedroom bests most top-shelf hotel suites. The guest bedroom is big and beautiful, bright and tranquil, and is served by its own full, marble bath. In this spacious, pet-friendly, lofty condo home -- a heart-warming residence with in-home laundry and ample well-planned closets -- life is easy and good. The doorman is full-time, the superintendent is live-in, the planted roof deck has dining and grilling areas, and the convenient address comes with bragging rights: Nearby is most every prime Chelsea cultural, dining, and shopping destination -- not to mention a plethora of easy transportation options, and a new playground/park right on the block. In 1887, Hugh O+éGÇÖNeill had a dream. Today+éGÇÖs impressive version of that dream is ready for you.
