About Peter Wetzler and Julie Hedrick

Julie Hedrick is a renown artist and her partner Peter Wetzler is a composer/pianist.

Peter Wetzler and Julie Hedrick purchased this chateau / country house in 1987

Why Peter Wetzler and Julie Hedrick chose Hudson Valley

Coming from the East Village we were immediately drawn to The Rondout neighborhood of Kingston for its beauty, proximity to the river (just down the hill) and mix of unique architecture and neighborhoods. The church property was built in 1800's and the glorious high ceilings and solid construction was a dream come true for an artist and composer. We raised 2 children here all the while hosting Peter's ensemble "The Repeatos" for marathon recording and performing stints. After the children left the roost and the Repeatos have spread to the four corners it was an easy transition to "Church Des Artistes" , a unique retreat for friends and family.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Our large country style kitchen is perfectly suited for gatherings of families and friends sitting around the farm table or preparing great feasts to dine on in the Great Hall. With our wonderful 8 burner stove, 2 separate sinks and lots of counter space multiple chefs can work at the same time. We have 4 claw foot tubs, 3 showers and a tub with jacuzzi jets and fabulously strong water pressure for really enjoyable showers.

Church Des Artistes is absolutely lovely.

  • 5 of 5

I went with a group of women for a weekend away of cooking, talking, sleeping, and enjoying the charming town of Kingston. Church Des Artistes was beyond anything I could have imagined in a home away from home for the weekend. The beds and couches were sink-in comfy and the kitchen was incredible - with darling plates and serving platters, and a huge cast iron stove, and the best morning sunshine to accompany a cup of tea on the farm kitchen table. The living room space is breathtaking. Every nook of this home if inspiring. Thank you to kind, open, and thoughtful owners Peter and Julie - we'll be back soon!!

Notes:
This 1800's Romanesque brick building was originally a church hall converted into an artists home/ studios with a unique and comfortable style. Adorned with beautiful artwork and shabby sheik furniture and style one feels a sense of peace and tranquility here. Our location is a marvelous blend of quiet retreat with urban amenities of nearby walks to galleries, restaurants, marinas and museums and short drives to swimming holes, waterfalls and neighboring towns.
