    • This is an odd one: The county GIS system does not include 148 Holly Mount Church Road as an address (the address given in property records is 0 Holly Mount Church Road, which is the address given for almost all properties on the road).
    • The county property record provides almost no detail about the house — no square footage, number of bedrooms or bathrooms.  It lists a “TENANT HSE” on the property and includes a note, “DWG STILL LIVED IN”. The date of the house is given as 1990.
    • The county record does include some information that matches the listing. It  gives the same lot size, 3.14 acres. The owner of the property is listed with an address in Colorado. The phone number for the owner in the listing is in Colorado as well.
    • The property is in the Uwharrie National Forest, about midway between Candor and Mount Gilead.
    • Listing: “This home was built in the 1800s before the county was established.” Montgomery County was created in 1779.
