Some people celebrate the red, white and blue of the Fourth of July with picnics, parades and fireworks. Other American traditions are hot dogs, apple pie and homeownership, and just in time for the Independence Day holiday there appropriately are red, white and blue houses on the market in Fairfield.

They vary in styles and all would make great residences for first-time buyers looking for a starter home or empty nesters looking to downsize.

Representing the red stripes of Old Glory is a six-room bungalow at 497 Westport Turnpike, built in 1920 along the Aspetuck River. It has 1,422 square feet of living space including three bedrooms, a full bath on each level, and a deck and patios from which to enjoy the waterfront view, listen to the river babble and birds sing. One person called it a "nature lover's paradise."

The white stars and stripes of the American flag are represented by a five room Ranch at 45 Geneva Terrace, a street off South Pine Creek Road in a quiet and close-knit neighborhood. The 1,008-square-foot house has three bedrooms and one full bath. It was built in 1962. It provides an easy commuting distance with proximity to the Post Road (Route 1), Interstate 95 and the downtown train station

The blue field of the star-spangled banner is represented by a seven-room Colonial house at 114 Rosemere Ave. Built in 1941, this house has 1,788 square feet of living space including three bedrooms, one full and one-half baths, and a sun room that can double as a family room. There is a fireplace in the family room and a vaulted ceiling in the family room.
