### One Eighth 1/8 Of An Acre Plot In Kenya

## One Eighth 1/8 Of An Acre Plot In Kenya

An “eighth of an acre” plot in Kenya is typically **measured as 15 meters by 30 meters, which is approximately 0.045 hectares. When converted to feet, it measures about 49 feet, 2.55 inches by 98 feet, 5.1 inches. **

In Kenya, this measurement is commonly used to define the size of land parcels, even though it differs slightly from the standard imperial measurement of 50 feet by 100 feet, which equals 0.125 acres.

## 1/8 Of An Acre In Feet

An eighth of an acre is actually surveyed **as 15m by 30m, which makes it exactly 0.045ha. If you convert this to feet, you will get it as 49ft, 2.55in by 98ft,5.1in. Clearly, ’50×100′ is an approximation – actually an over-approach! When given the dimensions in feet, e.g., 50 by 100, always divide by 10 then multiply by 3 to know the size in meters.**

For example, 50 feet = (50/100)*3 = 5*3 = 15 meters. If given the size in meters, always multiply by 10 then divide by 3 to determine the size in feet. For instance, 15 meters = (15*10)/3 = 150/3 = 50 feet

Here are some tips on working with 1/8th of an acre land measurements:

- For a rectangular plot, 50 by 100 refers to 50 feet by 100 feet, which is equivalent to 15 meters by 30 meters and is also equal to 450 square meters. This is what people refer to as 1/8 of an acre, though slightly less due to the provision for access road. An acre will, therefore, give you 8 such plots with an access road. A quarter is double this size (Double the surface area)
- The plot may not be rectangular, thus always take the surface area of the plot irrespective of the shape of the plot. For instance, an 1/8 will measure approximately 450 square meters (15m by 30m)
- 1 Hectare = 10,000 square meters, and 2.5 acres make a hectare
- 1 acre is equivalent to 0.404Ha, 1/2 acre = 0.202 Ha, 1/4 acre = 0.101, and 1/8 = 0.05Ha. Once an acre is subdivided, the measurements reduce slightly because of the access roads. For instance, the 1/8 = 50 by 100 feet = 15 by 30 meters = 450/10,000, which becomes 0.045Ha.
- When buying land, visit the place, take a tape measure, and determine the surface area in square meters, then divide by 10,000 to know whether what is indicated on the title deed/Certificate of lease is correct (Usually appears in Ha.)
- If it is a Certificate of Lease as opposed to Title Deed for freehold land, check how many years are remaining on the lease before committing your money. Mortgage companies are very particular about this
- Finally, you get twelve (12) 40
*80 plots, thus 1 and 1/4 acres will give you 15 40*80 plots

In summary, an eighth of an acre is equivalent to 0.045ha or 450 square meters. It is important to take the surface area of the plot irrespective of the shape of the plot when working with land measurements.

When buying land, it is advisable to visit the place, take a tape measure, and determine the surface area in square meters, then divide by 10,000 to know whether what is indicated on the title deed/Certificate of lease is correct.

## One eighth of an acre plot in Kenya price

The price of an eighth of an acre plot in Kenya can vary widely depending on the location, infrastructure, and other factors. In urban areas and major cities like Nairobi, Mombasa, or Kisumu, the price for an **eighth-acre plot can range from Ksh 1 million to several million Kenyan shillings.**

In more rural or less developed areas, the price may be lower, often ranging from a few hundred thousand to a few million Kenyan shillings.

It’s essential to research specific regions and consult with local real estate agents to get accurate and up-to-date pricing information for eighth-acre plots in Kenya, as prices can fluctuate over time.

## How Many Plots Of 100×50 Feet Are In One Acre?

There are **8 plots of 100×50 feet in one acre. This calculation is based on the fact that a 100×50 feet plot is considered to be 1/8th of an acre**, meaning that when you divide one acre into equal plots of this size, you get eight plots.
