One acre consists of 43 560 square feet or 4,840 square yards or 0.4 hectares. This is the internationally accepted measurement of one acre. The word acre was first coined to denote the area that will be ploughed by an ox in a single day. The field for American football measures 1.32 acres. It was only about 300 hundred years ago that an acre could be expressed in geometric terms. Prior to this an acre would be defined in terms of number of furlongs, perches and chains.

The United States survey acre is equal to 4046.87 square meters. This is true because the 'foot' in the United States is bigger than the 'foot' in the rest of the world. The word 'acre' originated from 'aker' which meant open field in old English. An acre on the map does not exactly correspond to its size on the ground if the ground is at a slope.

No one needs a house that big. If you feel that you do, it is called sublimation, and there is some thing seriously lacking in your life. I suggest a 2-3 thousand sq.ft. Home and give the money you will not spend to an organization that helps to save the lives of American children.
