$2 billion Powerball winner buys new Bel Air mansion; Take a look inside
Angels – People often think about what they would do if they won the lottery. After winning the biggest lottery jackpot of all time – $2 billion – in November, a California man had even more reasons to think about it.
“I am shocked and happy to have won the Powerball lottery. As someone who has received the education rewards of the California public education system, it is gratifying to hear that as a result of my win, the school system is also benefiting greatly,” says Edwin Castro.
Castro has kept a relatively low profile since his historic victory. However, he made quite a statement after buying a multi-million dollar seven-bedroom, eleven-bathroom mansion in the Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles.
The property was brought to Castro’s attention by Aaron Kerman of the Aaron Kerman Group at Compass and Mauricio Umansky of the agency, who handled the listing process.
Castro’s home, known as the “Palazzo di Vista,” was initially listed at $87,777,777. Designed by star reconstructive surgeon Alex Cadavy in collaboration with Ali Rad Design Group, the mansion cost Castro $25.5 million.

This left him with an estimated $600 million in the bank after taxes on the total amount of Powerball.
Palazzo offers panoramic views of the San Gabriel Mountains and Channel Islands from a hilltop overlooking Bel Air, California. One of the most sought after neighborhoods in Los Angeles, the mansion sits on an acre of land, offering privacy and seclusion.
Along with Beverly Hills and Holmby Hills, Bel Air is known for its lavish mansions and celebrity residents. With neighbors like Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Kylie Jenner, and Jennifer Lawrence, Castro is in exclusive company.
Throughout the palace, you’ll find a central glass elevator surrounded by a pool-sized koi pond. Swimmers can tune in to their favorite tunes using multiple planes synced to the house music.
