My mom is one of 5 kids and they lived in a 2 bedroom apartment in New York City through the 1940-50's, on the 4th floor of a walk-up (no elevator/lift). Children only take up as much room as you allow.
I would add on to the castle. It was very common for castles to be enlarged as needed over time. Your an Architect GO FOR IT!!

Kids would love to live in a castle ! Don't move out
The extra kids can sleep on the roof since it feels like a tree house up there, so he said, and most kids love that sort of thing anyway so....

Storybook Cottage By The Sea A Mini-Castle, Saved From Ruins, 1 day ago   10:23

This small fantasy cottage by the ocean is one that you have to see to believe. Located directly on the shoreline of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, this fairytale tiny home is built from natural materials using old-fashioned techniques to deliver a home which looks as though it has fallen from the pages of a storybook.

Inside, the home is surprisingly contemporary, making this not only a visually stunning architectural marvel, but also a practical dwelling designed to include all the creature comforts.
