Karen Huger Just Shared Some Big Real Estate News: “I Do Think About the Legacy”

The Real Housewives of Potomac cast member revealed a new project in her hometown.

Over the years, Karen Huger has revealed to The Real Housewives of Potomac fans some very intriguing details about her family’s history — including their deep connection to the land in Surry County, Virginia. In the two-part special, The Real Housewives of Potomac: Karen’s Grande Dame Reunion, which aired in 2022, Karen shared more intricate facts about her family, the Woodens, and what the future holds for their farm, which has been in her family for more than a hundred years.

“Where are we going next with the farm? That’s a whole other story. The younger generation is working very diligently to take the farm into the future,” Karen shared with BravoTV.com in an April 2022 interview.

Separately, Karen’s daughter, Rayvin, said, “My hope and prayer is that we are deliberate and proactive about our intentions for the family farm. I think it all comes down to strategizing a way we can honor the land, keep it within the family, and utilize it so that it can work for us as well.”

More recently, on an episode of RHOP, Karen gave an update on what’s been going on with the family farm, sharing some big real estate news in the process.

Karen Huger reveals she bought her grandmother’s house

On Season 8, Episode 7, which aired on December 17, Karen shared some news with Candiace Dillard Bassett and Nneka Ihim while driving home from a group outing: she bought her grandmother’s home in Surry County.

“It took me almost a year to get my aunt Val to agree to sell me a piece of her land — praise God!” Karen shared in an interview.

She continued, adding how they settled on what to do with the property: “My grandmother’s home is 104 years old. It certainly is historical, it certainly is a warm and loving place; so I am turning that into an experience, which is a mini resort for tourism in Surry County, Virginia.”

Karen went on in her interview, explaining the thought process behind her decision and what she has planned for the future. “My parents were great teachers and they taught me to give back,” she shared. “They are the foundation I stand on, so my children will stand on me as their foundation and my grandkids as well.”

Karen added: “My [recent birthday] made me think: ‘What am I leaving? What type of legacy am I leaving?’ I ain’t goin’ nowhere anytime soon, mind y’all, but I do think about the legacy.”

Back in the car with the ladies, Karen shared a few more important details about her big real estate decision.

“I’m not the only Black woman or Black family member that owns a plantation and farm,” the Virginia native shared. “And I hope that when they see it it’s duplicated around the U.S.”

Nneka echoed those sentiments, saying, “You know what you’re doing is like … huge.”

In our aforementioned exclusive interview with Karen in 2022, she spoke to the above sentiments concerning Black families in the U.S. and the importance of carrying on and starting new traditions.

“Let’s be honest, this conversation needed to be had. In this country, when we’re often asked not to talk about Black history, Bravo allowed me [and my family] the opportunity to talk about it. We were excited to share our struggle and our victory, so it all aligned. It’s perfect timing,” she said. “I’ve always shared with RHOP [fans] my family [story], but it deserved that moment to have it be a stand-alone.”

Karen Huger’s update on her plans for her grandmother’s house

In the video above, which is a preview of Season 8, Episode 11 of RHOP, Karen met with her cousin David and her aunt Val to discuss the farm. “Aunt Val runs the family farm, and David is aunt Val’s son,” Karen explains in the clip. “Val, after the family reunion, certainly had an iron-clad will.”

“I bought my grandmother’s estate, let’s be clear,” Karen continued. “I am turning that into a retreat guest house. Hallelujah! She let it go, for a nice dollar.”

As the trio met to talk about plans, Karen explained, “I see 18 months to two years to get it going. The first thing I have to do is find out whether the structure is sound enough for me to renovate, and if it’s not, we’ll talk about the new structure that I’m going to erect.”
