Paula Vistad from the Devils Lake Chamber helped Paula and Kory Anderson unveil their latest fine urban living venture Wednesday evening in a ribbon cutting ceremony and Business After Hours event held at Carnegie Lofts.

The “bones” of the city’s old beloved Carnegie Library are still there, but the upper level has been transformed into two unique, spacious luxury and all-inclusive apartments now called Carnegie Lofts.

Owned by Paula and Kory Anderson the project has been over two years in the making.

“I spent two years designing and planning this venture,” Paula said. And she is pleased with how they’ve turned out.

The two apartments are almost mirror images of each other with many historic features incorporated into the design, like the former library’s original fireplaces and wooden bookshelving. But everything has been restored to fit with the high-end decor.

The two apartments are Devils Lake’s first “Extended stay” luxury living facility. Not a hotel and not apartments, they’re the newest thing in providing luxury living for a limited length of time. Of course, if someone wants to stay long-term those arrangements can be made, according to Paula Anderson, the project’s CEO.

The lofts include unlimited WIFI, 125 cable TV, secure entrances with private parking, all heat, electricity, air-conditioning, utilities and softened water.

The amenities featured include personal laundry facilities, large walk-in dressing room and custom closets, designer bedding and sheets, a deluxe shower/tub combination with spa quality towels and luxury robe, hairdryer and even a scale provided.

The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you’d need to live - except the food items - including a Keurig Coffee Maker. The countertops are done in a lovely granite, finer than most private high-end homes.

Italian leather furniture, New Zealand wool rugs, maple flooring and contemporary artwork round out the striking decor.
