$310,750 Bid Takes Former Beeghly Property at Auction

A local bidder was the winner of an online auction for a secluded single-family residence built by business and community leaders Bruce and Nancy Beeghly, Byce Auction of Youngstown reported today.  

The winning bid for the property, 5700 Clingan Road, was $310,750 for the auction, which closed at 4 p.m. Wednesday.

The Beeghlys, who built the home in 1993, later donated the property to Mill Creek MetroParks. Mahoning County records show the tax value of the property is $455,780 and annual property taxes are $9,196. 

The property, which includes a 4,417-square-foot house on 5.9 acres with a private lighted drive, received 23 bids from nine bidders, including one from as far away as California.

Jeff Byce, president of Byce Auction, said he could not disclose the identity of the winning bidder. The name will be released upon recoding of the deed.

The site is just east of Lake Hamilton and south of Yellow Creek Park and is accessed by an 800-foot lighted private drive. The property borders land owned by Aqua Ohio and leased by Mill Creek MetroParks.
The contemporary architectural quality home features four bedrooms, three full- and two half baths, two master suites, vaulted ceilings, great room with fireplace, cat walk, den, Florida room, two-car attached garage, multiple decks, electronic security and a carriage house all surrounded by old growth trees. It is located within the Struthers School District with parcels in Poland Township.

Per the terms of the sale, the high bidder will be required to make a $30,000 deposit and the contract will be submitted for confirmation. Upon final confirmation by Mahoning County Probate Court, the high bidder will have 60 days to pay the balance and close on the property. 

Proceeds from the sale will be dedicated to the upcoming redevelopment project at Ford Nature Center in Youngstown, the park district said last month.
