Which Member Of The Real Housewives Of The Potomac Has The Most Expensive Home?

"The Real Housewives of Potomac" is one of the many series installments of the Real Housewives franchise on Bravo. It's about the personal lives, professional ventures, and dynamic friendships between a group of successful women living in Potomac, Maryland. The show has been airing on Bravo for the last six years with six successful seasons and is one of the most-watched series of the franchise. The women are very successful and their luxurious homes show for it. As business owners, wives, and mothers, these women are living comfortably and lavishing on the fruits of their labors. 

If you're wondering how much each housewife spent on their deluxe pads, you've come to the right place. Here you can find all the tea on the Potomac housewives and their beautifully elegant homes. One thing about these women is they are not cheap. The cast members treat their homes just like their businesses — as an investment.

Gizelle Bryant

"House Bryant," as she likes to call it, was purchased by Gizelle Bryant in 2019 in Bethesda, Maryland. According to Bravo, the single mom of three paid roughly $900K for the fixer-upper and had plans to build a two-story extension. 

The outside of the house includes a brick exterior with an open car garage made of brick to match and a round driveway. While the house originally looked small, Bryant had plans to expand and add another level to the home, and that's exactly what she did. According to Bravo, the business entrepreneur finished building the west wing in 2021, and the wait was well worth it. Her two-story "west wing" includes a remodeled entryway, kitchen, and a soft pink glam room with a massive vanity. Her closet is kept on the opposite side of the room with an island in the center. Her first-floor bathroom features Italian marble in the bathroom with high ceilings and a freestanding tub. Let's not forget her $8,000 chandelier.

Candiace Dillard-Bassett

This RHOP star purchased her 10,000-square-foot abode with her husband, chef Chris Bassett, for $1 million in 2020, according to Reality Blurb. The two-story home has a neat brick and stone structure with a double door entry; the entryway is enormous with a curved staircase that leads to the second floor, separating on both sides at the top of the stairs. The floors are hardwood, and the dining room features a chandelier with colossal front windows. 

The home has five bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms with a master suite and bath. It also features two living rooms — one for entertaining guests, while the other is cozier and more private. The kitchen includes gray countertops, a massive kitchen island, and a custom wine refrigerator. There is plenty of light throughout the house and high ceilings in every room. The independent artist's home is located in a gated community with a country club and golf course.

Karen Huger

Of course, the grand dame is the richest housewife of the Potomac cast, so it's no surprise that the reality star diva and entrepreneur goes all out for her six bedroom, six bath palace. The OG housewife and her husband Ray moved into the Potomac home in 2020 and have cherished every moment of it since. While it is not known exactly how much the couple purchased the home for, according to Zillow, it was sold for $1,417,500 in 2019. The outside of the Potomac home features a light brick entryway with white low front windows and a balcony right above the wooden door that you can't miss. The balcony gives a castle-like feel to the home.

The kitchen features state-of-the-art appliances, white cabinets, dashing décor, and a flashy chandelier in the living room that will be sure to have your jaw drop to the floor. She describes the kitchen as "gorgeous," yet the "most wasted" and her "least favorite" part of the house, according to Bravo. Huger's home office, where she works on her perfume line, La'Dame Fragrance, is feminine and bright with a white desk and beige curtains followed by tones of yellow and clear asymmetrical decor. Her beautiful all-white family room is one of a kind.

Ashley Darby

Darby moved into her Washington, D.C. penthouse condo in 2012 with her husband, Michael Darby, a well-known real estate millionaire. While much is not known about her real estate portfolio or how much she paid for the penthouse, the three-bedroom, 3.5 bath, 2,750-square-foot condo was sold in 2007 for $$2,250,000, according to Zillow, five years before Darby moved in. It's safe to say it wasn't cheap, but what's unique about the residence is it was developed by her husband's company in 2006.

According to Bravo, the lavish condo overlooks specular views of the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, and capitol building. The living room features a pool table in the center, which Darby jokes that her husband loves more than her, per Bravo. The penthouse also includes a dining room area with a 1,000-pound glass table that required ten people to carry it, according to Darby. It also has a luxurious rooftop with an extensive bar for making cocktails or lighting up the grill, according to Elle Decor.

Monique Samuels

Monique Samuels was a former cast member for four seasons before leaving the franchise in December 2020. In 2017, she and her husband, former NFL player Chris Samuels, purchased a new 12,000-square-foot Potomac residence for $4.75 million, according to Bravo. Originally, the house had an old, elegant, woodsy vibe that Samuels transformed into a modern Miami theme, according to Bravo. 

The Maryland mansion features six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a pool with spacious patio seating, and a shark tank in the kitchen. The kitchen and family room are adjacent, so Samuels can see her kids from the kitchen while they're playing, which is one of her favorite perks. She transformed the original library that came with the house into a playroom for her two kids, Christopher and Milani, according to Bravo. The luxurious home even features an elevator. The reality star and entrepreneur loves sparkled décor and didn't shy away from crystals or metallic. The master suite is a calm, champagne color with shades of gold and cream. This is just the most recent residential purchase of the Samuels, as Monique and her husband own four other properties in Virginia and Maryland.
