For creative New York couple and LocalHaus founders, Ben and Lauren Lindsey, finding their dream home didn't come without its challenges.

The pair inspected "about 50" pre-war, Brooklyn townhouses, some better than others — but none without their quirks. Eventually, the family of four stumbled across their "diamond in the rough", and have been quietly converting their live-work space ever since.

"We’re on the border of the Park Slope and Greenwood neighborhoods, in Brooklyn — or South Slope, in real estate parlance," explains Ben Lindsey. "It’s a quiet, family-friendly neighborhood, it reminds us of what it might have been like to live here 50 years ago."
