congrats on the new house. You don't list budget, but there are many solutions at whatever budget.
as previously mentioned, you want to have your speakers flank the TV. for a very clean look, check out the artison( pic attached) (artisonusa.com)
there are tons of "thin" LCR speakers available at all price ranges. low end are the dayton mk442 series(parts express) higher up are the goldenear supersat, or ascend acoustic luna duo.
with the right mounts, you might even be able to go a little wider along the walls and angle the speakers (L,R) towards the existing couch.
as for the receiver, get a recent model - Denon s7x0 - its worth it for the streaming support, 4k support, app control, and HEOS. find a refurb unit at accessories4less.com. another denon unit you may consider is the HEOS receiver. It will allow you to run wireless (via HEOS) surrounds (its the only denon unit that supports this) I hear the Yamaha receivers can support wireless surrounds via musicast( Yamaha's proprietary whole house audio system)
as for the under the loft area, run those via a separate zone on the receiver or second zone amp
another option would be a soundbar - a Sonos playbar or beam might do you well. you could also run the under the loft area on a separate connect amp...
