I second that OwnCloud is worth consideration, it is very mature and
I'd also recommend Syncany, unlike OwnCloud you won't require a server
instance and therefore unlike OwnCloud the encryption will be handled
client side

Whatever you do, once you have things set up put some dates in your
diary for "fire drills" where you double check that whatever you're
doing to protect your most critical data from any type of disaster, that
it's working.
Also, you might find that Duplicity is well suited for backing up the
majority of your data/filesystem, and that Syncany is what you want for
backing up your documents folder (which might be a dm-crypt container or
similiar if you don't want to rely entirely on an alpha release product).

Hope this is helpful :)
