Hook and Ladder 8 was the real-life firehouse that served as the Ghostbusters headquarters in New York City. But the Tribeca landmark isn't the only firehouse that has been converted into a live-work space (though maybe not for a ghost-fighting crew). Realtor.com contributing writer Lisa Kaplan Gordon presents five firehouses that have been cleverly renovated into homes.

You can live, work, and play in a 1887 renovated firehouse in Sanford, Fla., for $849,000. The 3,700-square-foot building also has commercial space in addition to a 2,400-square-foot living space featuring two bedrooms, two bathrooms, exposed brick walls, exposed wood beams, and a rooftop deck. Or, builders can purchase a "fixer-upper"--a 12-bedroom Philadelphia brick firehouse for $175,000.
