    Andre Agassi's wigs may no longer live there but his old Tiburon home is still threatening to lose its top.

    YouTube investor Stuart Peterson bought the $20 million 12,400-square-foot compound from Agassi in 2006 and now he wants to demolish the estate that Agassi shared with his superstar wife, Steffi Graf.

    Why does Peterson want to tear down the Round Hill Estate, which features the main house and a 2,500-square-foot staff quarters with 11 bedrooms, 11 full baths between them? Because he needs more space.

    Peterson wants to build a 15,250-square-foot mansion on the 3.5-acre property that already has a helicopter landing pad, two swimming pools and of course a tennis court. The venture capitalist wants to add new swimming pools and multiple tennis courts as well as a wet bar.

    But the plan cannot go through without a little love from Agassi's old neighbors. The proposal will go in front of the Tiburon Design Review Board on Jan. 21, according to the Marin Independent Journal.
