The dodecagon part of the house is carved into six triangular shaped spaces, a bathroom with a spa bath, three bedrooms, a kitchen, as well as a laundry and powder room.

A circular passageway with a light well connects the pieces of the 1960s two-storey, four-bedroom house at 15 Linton Avenue. 

Set on a 652 square metre block, the property came with approved plans and permits for two townhouses, Jellis Craig, Doncaster, agent Andrew Keleher said.
