Cottage, formerly coachman's house.1870 by George Devey, with late C20 porch. Red brick in
mixed bonds with diaper patterning in blue brick. Pebbledash rendered upper storey, tile-hung
gables and plain tile roofs. Plain brick storey band. One and a half storeys. Massive external stack
in diaper-patterned brickwork, with slender band above eaves. Three diagonally-set rectangular
shafts, said to have been rebuilt but to authentic design, an added half-nipped dormer. with 2-light
diamond paned casement. Ground-floor 3-light casement, and altered glazed doors. Entrance to
north in added gabled porch attached to unaltered gabled wall. Four-fight ground floor casement
with diamond panes. Similar 3-light casement to upper floor, beneath tile-hung gable of alternating
plain and fishscale patterns. Similar details to south gable. Small gable with diamond paned window
to Beverley Lane elevation, corresponding to break in brickwork, and following natural fill of
ground. Tall curtain wall with shaped parapet, partly swept, drops to become garden wall. Small
inset window and vestigial stack. Arched doorway with simple plank door, whereafter the building
line continues for twenty metres of brick wall in similar style but without diapers.
Gable Cottage and Warren Close (q.v.) stand either side of the original entrance to Coombe
Warren, built by George Devey in 1870 for Bertram Wodehouse Currie MP and demolished in
1926. The two form a particularly picturesque group, and are good examples ofDevey's consumate
skill in designing estate cottages.
