We will be building a new house to live in, what features could we add to make this the best house ever?

We are going to be building our new house and are very excited. We have met the architects a couple of times and they are working on the initial designs. What I am looking for are things that could be implemented within the designs the architects come up with. The problem is that we have always lived in pretty normal houses from the 70s and earlier and so don't really know what is out there and what the experience of living with these things is.
An easy example would be going for a tankless water heater instead of a traditional one (we've already done this in our current house and it is great). But what about a water softener? The state of my kettle tells me the water here is hard, but no one I know has one. Having more than one outlet per bedroom would be nice too.
We're in Toronto and the lot is not particularly large ( 17m(55') by 29m(96')).
(And thanks to today's FPP I am already planning where the secret kids room can go)
