Manager info

Year Purchased: 1987

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

Why Kingston, NY, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
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.
