What is a quarter acre?
A quarter-acre, is a term commonly used in Australia and New Zealand which refers to suburban residential land.
The traditional cultural aspiration for Australians has been to own a three- or four-bedroom house or bungalow situated on a plot a quarter of an acre in size.
This aspiration is often referred to as the Australian Dream.
However, trends in recent years have seen a shift away from the Australian dream and the aspiration to own a quarter-acre. Residential planning has evolved into subdivisions, apartments, and townhouses. Modern subdivisions average half or less of the traditional quarter-acre size.
