If you're looking to acquire an English house with literary connections, Ponden Hall, the 17th-century property that is said to have inspired Wuthering Heights, is for sale for £1m ($1.28m).
Located in the wild and windy moors just outside Stanbury near Haworth in West Yorkshire, the Brontë sisters made regular visits to the historic house in the 19th century, and it is now a popular guesthouse.
This 5000-square-foot detached property sits in extensive grounds of approximately four acres offering panoramic views over Ponden Reservoir and the open countryside. The east end of the property dates back to 1541 and the main house was built in 1634. The former free-standing Peat Loft at the west end of the house dates back to 1680, and it was joined to the main house in the major renovation of 1801.
