I think that setup sounds pretty good. You didn't mention it but I imagine you'd also have a SHW setup for DHW.

I like the idea of sinking the house for additional insulation, but you wouldn't be able to get the southern window space (unless you dug out around it) that you could with a house above grade. You also may have water/ice issues with steps leading down to your front door.
