The couple, who refuse to hire professionals to finish the property, has since spent all their free time redesigning and decorating it - with the help of their famous friend Armani.
Brody says, "We prefer to do it ourselves. I think it's very important to be involved personally with anything creative. I cannot just hand things over. I've got lots of ideas and I can't just let somebody else do it. It doesn't feel as rewarding as doing it yourself.
"No architects, no property specialists, none of that - although we do have good friends who help us out. One of them is Giorgio Armani. One day I wrote a letter to Armani asking him if he'd be interested in helping us. He loved the idea and got personally involved."
And Brody admits there is so much work to do on the castle, he has devoted the rest of his life to renovating it.
He adds, "It's never going to be finished. It's a life project, whether I like it or not! I think that there's beauty in that, in acknowledging that something can never be really finished. I think that this farm can constantly evolve."
