They paid $980,000 to secure the property after just one open home.
Mr Ward said the buyers had inspected several other acreage properties in Lara and instantly knew this was the one for them.
“They wanted an acreage property and the fact it was close to the You Yangs just added to it a bit,” he said.
“They are a young couple and they are moving from Geelong.”
The spacious home offers three living areas, including a formal loungeroom, open-plan family room and a rumpus room.
Much of the attraction lay outside with the large paved outdoor entertainment area, deck with a spa, dog run with built-in kennels, an 18m x 7.5m shed and open paddocks.
Mr Ward said there was strong demand for Lara properties across the board.
Lara’s median house price rose 11.1 per cent over the past year to $523,750, CoreLogic data shows.
