Ellis House in Kyneton, Australia, is a beautiful four bedroom vacation home that can be rented. It belongs to Tracie Ellis, who is also the owner of Australian textile and home accessory brand Aura Home. For as long as she can remember, Tracie dreamt of creating the perfect country escape, an ideal combination of rustic comfort and modern luxury. Tracie: “It started with the beautiful bare bones of a classic 1860’s building, a key part of Kyneton’s rich architectural history. We lovingly renewed the house from door sill to chimney cap, carefully balancing respect for the building’s original features with contemporary needs. Inspired by Belgium modern interiors and the desire for luxurious simplicity, we have harmonised the old and the new through light and colour. Indoor and outdoor spaces flow into each other, bathed in the serene light of another time.” Now the perfect country retreat for a discerning traveller, Ellis House offers three-quarters of an acre of beguiling gardens, space to comfortably sleep eight adults, relaxed linens, elegant lighting and a modern, relaxed aesthetic.
