The wall in Georgetown.

One of Georgetown's most peculiar properties is no longer for sale. 

The red wall near the corner of 30th and M Street NW (map) originally hit the market a year ago for $50,000. After several $1,000 price reductions, the wall was taken off the market at the beginning of the summer. 

The wall is known as a demising wall, which is a wall that is left standing when a rowhouse is torn down. Because this type of wall usually separates adjacent properties, there are instances where the wall is not owned by either property owner. And that was the scenario for the red wall. 

A bank adjacent to the Georgetown wall helped preserve it over the years, and owner Allan Berger has offered it to friends as a canvas for artistic murals. He also unsuccessfully attempted to sell the wall to the owner of the adjacent 30th Street home. 

UrbanTurf will continue to monitor the wall to see if it comes back on the market.
