Emily Brontë, it is reasonable to surmise, would be horrified at London property prices. In Haworth, in West Yorkshire, where she and her sisters grew up, you can still get a seven-bedroom detached house for £375,000.
But if all properties retain something, however fleeting, of the people who have lived in them, this one certainly stands out from the crowd.
Wuthering Heights, Court Road, Eltham, may never have quite the mystique of the original Wuthering Heights on the Yorkshire moors. But it can forever revel in its association with a remarkable young woman who, like Emily Brontë, dared to be different.
Wuthering Heights was Emily Brontë’s only novel. It was published in 1847, under the pseudonym Ellis Bell.
The book had mixed reviews at the time, largely on account of its frank depiction of violent emotional passions, but it is now regarded as one of the greatest novels in the language.
The title is the name of the farmhouse on the Yorkshire moors where most of the action is set.
The action revolves around the doomed love of the heroine, Catherine, for Heathcliff, an orphan from Liverpool who comes to live with her family.
Of the many screen adaptations, the most celebrated is the 1939 movie starring Laurence Olivier and Merle Oberon. There have also been a number of television versions.
Kate Bush, growing up in south London, was obsessed with the movie, as well as with the television adaptations, as a teenager – an obsession that would inspire her breakthrough song of the same name.
The song was released as her debut single in 1978, when she was just 19. She reportedly wrote it in a few hours late at night. It became a No 1 hit single, and Bush performed it on Top of the Pops.
Bush was the first woman to have a No 1 hit single that she had written herself.
Wuthering Heights also featured on her debut album The Kick Inside.
Emily Brontë and Kate Bush share a birthday – they were both born on July 30.
