Edwin Castro acquired a $25 million Hollywood Hills bachelor pad after winning, and he just bought a $4 million Altadena property near the gas station where he got the winning ticket.
His second property, a remodeled midcentury-style 4,300-square-foot mansion, sold on March 9 for $3.98 million, according to Zillow.
Dirt says it has five bedrooms, five bathrooms, and Japanese-inspired design. A pond, saltwater pool, and zen garden make the roughly three-quarter-acre property peaceful.
The 1953 single-story house contains a theater, studio, and two-car garage with an electric vehicle charging station. The old description mentions its Jatoba wood flooring, floor-to-ceiling windows, and huge, pivoting front doors.
After selling in 2010 to a French-born artist and her spouse for $1.1 million, Dirt reported that the residence was refurbished.
Roman James Design designed the bigger Hollywood Hills mansion he bought last year for $30 million. Five bedrooms and seven baths fill almost 13,000 sq. dwelling space.
The Agency, a luxury real estate business, describes the house as "sited discretely behind a series of gates atop the historic Chateau Marmont"
with "a huge array of opulent facilities and excellent finishes," including a game room, wine cellar, movie theater, fitness studio, sauna, and steam shower room.
The eat-in kitchen has Thermador appliances, and the living area has a fireplace. The garden and mountains are visible throughout the property. Two of the five bedrooms are now art studios and soundproof cinemas.
Pond, terrace, and saltwater pool surround the U-shaped home. A attached two-car garage and covered carport provide space for nearly a dozen automobiles.
"One fortunate ticket sold at Joe's Service Center in Altadena" won the Powerball jackpot on Nov. 8, but it took months for someone to claim the great prize, according to People.
Castro won the $997.6 million prize after taxes during a California lottery news announcement on February 14. Castro informed lottery officials he wanted to "stay secret" then.
