Combining the heater/sauna and the greenhouse makes perfect sense. Put it on the north side of the greenhouse and it won't block any sun. Having the plunge pool inside the greenhouse would give better access in the winter (assuming it would be snow/ice covered outside) but it could be pretty warm in the summer.
How big will this greenhouse be?

With that ditch between the trees and the house I'm guessing you'd have to do a lot of earthworks to cause a water lens to infiltrate into the basement. But I'm far from an expert in that department.
Having a well in the greenhouse would be very cool. It should help with winter temperature control (assuming you want to have plants in the greenhouse in winter).
Is a plunge pool just a deep pool with a small footprint? Would you make the well into the pool or have a separate pool somewhere?

The owner had a motorized cover for the pool (they had small children), the above ground portion was tiled concrete blocks.
His humidity was in the 75% range because he collected orchids and other tropical plants.

It definitely is a hard working immigrant.
Cut for for high quality nitrogen rich mulch and direct that to plants, trees and compost that you want, graze it and convert it into protein and animal tractor it where you want to remove it.
We can also eat it in various ways.
