In Australian and New Zealand English, a Quarter Acre is a term for a suburban plot of land. Traditionally, Australians and Kiwis aspire to own a 3- or 4-bedroom house or bungalow on a section of around a quarter of an acre. The land was frequently put to use with vegetable gardens, fruit trees, or lawns for family recreation.
The quarter-acre aspiration has changed in recent decades, with lifestyle farming blocks, infill housing, apartments, and townhouses becoming more common in large cities. Most "quarter-acre" sections are not exactly a quarter of an acre. With urban growth, properties tend be smaller.
