`Tis true downtown isn’t one of the best areas in Boston to shop for lofts. But there are some options. Take Unit 9A at 42 Chauncy Street

The 2,249-square-foot condo in an old Boston Edison power plant that was converted to residences nearly 20 years ago includes 17-foot ceilings and 16-foot windows. And there’s a loft within the loft that contains the condo’s sole bedroom.

There’s also a raised living room, one of the touches from a 2012 makeover that Boston-based architecture outfit Stern McCafferty oversaw. There’s also a “hidden TV” within that living room, according to the Commonwealth Real Estate listing for Unit 9A.

It’s on sale for $1.499 million, or $666 a square foot.
