Driving onto a property at 5700 Clingan Road, one might feel as if he or she has traveled much farther than the 800-foot driveway has taken them.
They have left the busy residential road and, not far away, the hustle and bustle of U.S. Route 224. They have entered a secluded property bounded by ravines, where a spacious house sits ensconced in nature. The soft sound of a waterfall in the distance heightens the effect.
Sitting on the 5.9-acre campus is a 4,417-square-foot house that features vaulted ceilings, multiple decks and large windows that bathe the rooms in light and look out onto surrounding woods.
This, along with the four bedrooms (two of which are master suites), three full and two half-baths, great room with a fireplace, den, Florida room and attached garage could be yours.
The Clingan Road house is being auctioned by Mill Creek MetroParks, with 100 percent of the sale proceeds benefiting a $3 million renovation project at Ford Nature Center.
The property was donated to the MetroParks in 2012 by Nancy and Bruce Beeghly, whose family has a long history of philanthropy in the Mahoning Valley.
Bruce, retired president and chief executive officer of Altronic Inc. in Girard, is the grandson of Leon A. Beeghly, founder of Standard Slag along with W.E. Bliss and W.H. Kilcawley.
The Beeghly family has long supported institutions in the Mahoning Valley, including Bruce and Nancy’s recent $1 million donation to Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley and $1.5 million gift to Youngstown State University.
