The Woollahra garden apartment of Graham McConnonchie, co-founder of Zoggs swimwear goggles line, and his wife, Jeanette has been scheduled for August 20 auction.

The innovative goggles were created 26 years ago and then endorsed by Dawn Fraser.

They were the first brand to provide UV protection and split yoke straps.

The Figtree Lane apartment, which has three bedrooms and two bathrooms with 350 square metre space close to Cooper Park, has been listed by veteran Double Bay agent Peter Anderson.

Set in a north facing bushland block of nine, it has been their home since 1994.

There have been around 20 sales of similar apartments among the 250 three bedders in Woollahra over the past year.

There have been two sales in the block at $2.8 million plus in the past two years.

Some 12 years after the launch of Zoggs, the brand was bought by the UK-based Kendal Group headed by Daniel and Leo Gestetner, with their son Neil remaining as its product development managing director.
