Beeghly house auction to benefit MetroParks

Posted: Updated:
STRUTHERS, Ohio -

Mill Creek MetroParks will be watching the auction of the former home of Bruce and Nancy Beeghly closely. 

The home is secluded on six wooded acres off Clingan Road just east of Lake Hamilton.  

The 4,400 square-foot home has four bedrooms with two master suites, three full and two half-baths.

The home was built in 1993 and was gifted to the MetroParks when the Beeghly's moved.

"All proceeds from the auction are going to benefit the Ford Nature Center redevelopment project, which is another house that was gifted to the parks 50 years ago this year," said MetroParks Director Aaron Young. 

The Ford home serves as the park's nature education center and is earmarked for $11 million in long-term improvements. 

"All the improvements planned for the Ford Nature Center are meant to enhance the visitor experience from access, some new technology, and maybe some new rooms," said Young.

The current tax value of the home is $455,000. The opening minimum bid is $175,000.  

The sale is being handled by Byce Auctions of Youngstown.

It is an online auction and the deadline for bids is 4 p.m. Wednesday.

There is a 10 percent buyer's fee and the final bid is subject to approval by the probate court.
