Surrounded by fields, this white-stuccoed brick house on a high base exemplifies a relatively rare Georgian type in the state: a shallow, single-pile plan with the facade topped by a big, sheltering gable-pediment. Two other examples are among Delaware's most esteemed buildings, Amstel House (NC19) and Belmont Hall (KT13); but unlike them, Sipple House (named for an antebellum owner) is unrestored and workaday. Its late-nineteenth-century crib barn is noteworthy, too.
