[PW] "Iiable" used as a noun in "The Univited"

Patron brought in a reprint copy of Dorothy Mcardle's The Univited. On page
seven, the description of a place reads "a liable opened onto the drive."
The question is, what is a liable in this context?  Or is it a misprint?
We checked the OED (print) and didn't find any definition that seemed to
fit.  I also looked at a couple of slang and architectural dictionaries and
didn't see it.

Any help appreciated!
