The 17th century property that reportedly inspired Emily Brontë's literary masterpiece Wuthering Heights has been listed for sale for $1.6 million

The 17th century property that reportedly inspired Emily Brontë's literary masterpiece Wuthering Heights has been listed for sale for $1.6 million.
 
According to a Harper’s Bazaar story, Ponden Hall in England’s West Yorkshire is considered by Brontë scholars to have been the inspiration for Thrushcross Grange, where the Linton family and eventually Cathy lived. Brontë and her family were frequent guests at the property, and the author’s sister, Anne Brontë, may have tapped Ponden Hall’s atmosphere as inspiration for her novel The Tenant of Wildfell Hall.
 
The nine-bedroom house, which has a separate annex, sits on four acres. Following a 20-year renovation, Ponden Hall opened to the public in 2014 as a popular B&B for visitors with a penchant for classic English literature.
