Unfurnished room in a Flatshare

I've enjoyed living here for over 12 months and I'm now looking for a friendly, mature and relaxed flatmate to share with. It's a quiet neighbourhood and the flat itself has reverse-cycle air conditioning, is nicely furnished and is located at the rear of a small complex of only 3 flats. Built-in robes and ceiling fan in both the Single room ($120) or the larger Master bedroom ($140) - I'm using the larger at the moment because it's only me here but I don't necessarily need to, so you pick the room size/rent amount that suits you. Other features include plenty of natural light throughout, a great kitchen, generous lounge plus a separate dining area. The bathroom has bathtub plus separate shower. Separate toilet, good carpets and good blinds. There's also a nice courtyard outside to make use of when the weather's good. Foxtel and wireless internet available. Outside smoking ok. Lease terms are 6 months... you'll need to submit an application to the agent and be approved by the landlord in order to be added to the lease.
