We are in a great newly built home and it has a lot of what's already been mentioned....but one thing it doesn't have and I wish we did have is ceiling fans in every room. We have ducted ac but in qld we need the ceiling fans too.
Another thing we are working on is a large outdoor area that's concreted and covered.

I agree with everyone's suggestions. If youre wanting heaps of storage - I think get as much as you can. A friend of mine had floor to ceiling invisible cupboards built on her hallway wall. To look at them they look like a wall but you push on them and the cupboard opens up. They aren't as deep as a typical cupboard but they don't need to be. She stores heaps of bulk purchases and baby stuff. It's an awesome use of dead space. I tease her that her cupboards look like a supermarket.

A wide front door, not a standard size. Also check where light switches are located. We have double doors leading into our bedroom, but the light switch is behind one of the doors. It's really annoying.

We have extra wide hallways, they are great. I cant touch each side if I stand in the centre with my arms out.

We made the mistake of building a house with a small laundry - will not be making that mistake again! Also, I have 9ft ceilings, and although it added about $4k to the price it was absolutely worth it, high ceilings give a sense of space and light that I just love. Otherwise pretty much everything else has been said, as many have mentioned, lots of storage is definitely a must.
