The winner of last month’s record-breaking Powerball lottery is on a spending spree.
California resident Edwin Castro, who won the $2.04 billion jackpot, the biggest lotto prize in U.S. history, just purchased a second home.
According to Dirt.com, the Japanese-inspired mansion is in the Los Angeles suburb of Altadena, near the gas station where Castro bought the winning ticket.
Castro’s new digs come after his first home purchase – a $25 million mansion in Hollywood Hills. Some of his new neighbors include singer Ariana Grande, actress Dakota Johnson and late-night host Jimmy Kimmel.
According to Dirt, the five-bedroom, five-bath Hollywood Hills mansion is built on the side of a cliff and includes more than 13,000 square feet of living space. His new $4 million estate consists of five bedrooms, a soundproof movie theater, Brazilian cherry hardwood floors, a large living room with a fireplace, and an eat-in kitchen, among other amenities.
Although Castro did not appear in person for the announcement of his lotto win, his name was released, and reporters worked diligently to find out as much as they could about the new multimillionaire. According to TMZ, Castro is 30 years old and a Crescenta Valley High School graduate in La Crescenta, California. Dirt reports that he is a former mechanic who earned a degree in architecture from Woodbury University in Burbank.
After Castro won the lottery last year, a man stepped forward, claiming that he was the actual owner of the ticket, which he said was stolen from him. Representatives at the California Lottery said they believe Castro is the rightful winner.
