The $2 billion Powerball winner Edwin Castro has done it again! He has added yet another property to his already impressive real estate portfolio. Castro recently acquired a $4 million “Japanese-inspired” home in Altadena, as reported by The Dirt. This comes after his purchase of a $25.5 million Hollywood Hills mansion earlier this month.
Built in 1953, the Altadena property is nestled among palm trees with unobstructed views of the San Gabriel Mountains. The 5-bedroom, 5-bathroom home spans 4,361 square feet and was last sold on March 9. It had previously hit the market back in 2010 for $1.1 million.
The home’s main attraction is the stunning courtyard, which is created by a red floating Japanese roof and a tranquil pond. The Zillow listing describes it as a “private oasis for you to escape and lounge in a zen patio.” The property also features a whole-house water filtration system, a solar system with Tesla PowerWall batteries, an art studio, den, and soundproof movie theater.
Outdoor amenities include a saltwater pool, pond, patio, and off-street parking for more than a dozen cars.
In addition to the Altadena home, Castro’s $25.5 million Hollywood Hills mansion overlooks the Sunset Strip and spans over 13,578 square feet. The “modern retreat” has 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, and was listed by luxury realtors The Agency with an original asking price of $29.95 million.
Castro made headlines in November 2021 when he won $2 billion in the Powerball drawing, the largest in U.S. history. He purchased his winning ticket at Joe’s Service Center, which is less than four miles away from his new Altadena home.
