I would suggest not to cut up such a sim into more than 4 parcels. The perfect size is 1/2 IMHO. It offers customers the feeling that they own the region alone and with 1875 prims there is a lot of capacity for a spacious home and prim based vegetation.
1/4 region with 937 prims is still fine, when you don't plan for a HUGE house but are happy with a tiki-like south sea style building or a simple bungelow. Anything smaller than that doesn't work too well on an low prim region.
This might sound surprising to some. The reason for this advice is a simple one, though: you tend to build a bit larger if there is room to spare
With less than 937 prims you quickly run into a situation where you have to decide between furniture and trees/plants etc. And a parcel that is bare of vegetation is usually not a nice thing to see (if you don't style it as desert or tundra) especially when there is a huge area around your home.
