If you plan on leaving your dog outside on his own so that he can play and exercise, then 30 acres won't be enough - GSDs are very people oriented, and more than space, they need the involvement of their owners to be happy. As others said, size of house and yard will not matter to your dog, what will determine his happiness and well being is how much time you spend doing stuff with him.
Lots of walks, play sessions, and training is what will help develop your bond and relationship. Training is on-going, smart dogs like GSDs thrive on it. What really surprised me when I started formal training with my Mutt is not only how much it helped her, but how much I enjoyed it, and how it changed are relationship completely to the better.
So plan on on-going training and fun activities in addition to your regular walks, and you will have a very happy dog!
