The wall in Georgetown.

No one has purchased Georgetown's most peculiar property for sale. 

A red wall near the corner of 30th and M Street NW (map) hit the market back in July for $50,000. The interesting property resulted in a number of articles and headlines around DC, including in UrbanTurf. Despite the publicity, the wall is still for sale.

When a rowhouse is torn down, occasionally a wall is left standing. Demising walls are partitions that separate one tenant space from another. 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 wall helped preserve it over the years, and owner Allan Berger 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. 

The eventual buyer is probably someone that would want to use the wall for artistic or advertising purposes. However, any uses of that nature would need go before the Old Georgetown Board.
