    This was the 160 acre farm of Friedrich Wilhelm Habicht (1856-1926), known around Avoca as F.W. or Fred. His family came to Iowa from Germany in 1874, and Fred worked as a blacksmith until he could buy a farm. He was successful as a breeder of swine, and his stock was known across the region for high quality.
    Fred married local farm girl Bertha Klindt and together they raised a family of nine. Their farm straddled the creek and after building this fine home, he named it The Cedars after the trees which grew there and still surround the house.

    That red bathroom…. I did a double take.

    I would turn that into a dressing room/diva den.

    Are my eyes playing tricks on me? It looks so spacious with no furniture….I was expecting the square footage to be more. A lovely place…

    Not a lot else here to say but “wow”. I would like to see what the tile in the foyer looks like. You can tell whoever remodeled this home does high quality work. I kind of feel bad for the current owners that they have to move out!

    I think this one is my all time favourite since I’ve joined OHD, it’s got the peace and quiet, it’s got lots to keep you busy, it’s got lots to keep you tranquil, it’s got lots of space, but not too much, it’s a style I love, there are neighbors way down the road if you want socialization or if you don’t, they are not on top of you, that what I think is a master bathroom is to die for. The woodwork is not spoiled. I’m in LOVE!

    If I wasn’t alone in this world..I would take this in a heartbeat. I would need both my sons to help with the yard work. It would be awfully lonely here by myself. I love every inch of it!
