Folks chuckle at the name of this beautiful Cape Cod-style home on over two scenic
acres in Caledon. But all true homes have their stories.
“Because we’re set high in the Caledon area and subject to windy conditions, I made a sign that read ‘Passing Wind Farm’ as a joke,” owner Al Frittenburg remembers. “We all had a good laugh, until my wife dared me to place it at the end of the driveway… and I did! The name stuck.” The appellation never fails to break the ice as a conversation piece. In fact, the sign is so popular, it’s used as a checkpoint for a local car rally. “It’s hard to miss,” Al laughs.
And so is this lovely estate. Recently, Al put his carpentry skills to major use. With help from Orangeville-based KitchenArt, he renovated the kitchen, previously too small for his wife, Ellen, who loved to cook. “We were planning to enlarge it, when my wife passed away, but I carried on with the reno in her memory,” say Al, who has two universityaged children, Tom and Kelly. Beloved golden retrievers OD and KC share the home too.
