Los Angeles: Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and partner Portia de Rossi are set to buy Brad Pitt's Malibu home after falling in love with the USD 14 million property which overlooks the Pacific Ocean.

The couple have just put their USD 49 million Beverly Hills compound on the market as they want to buy something smaller, reported People magazine.

The property consists of two separate houses, a pool, a tennis court and expansive lush gardens. The sprawling 4,100 square foot estate also has private beach access and is set back off the Pacific Coast Highway by a long private driveway.

The main house has four bedrooms and four baths, a large chefs kitchen with stainless steel appliances, bamboo floors, three fire places and a top of the range security system.

Pitt, who also has homes in Los Angeles, New Orleans, France and Italy with partner Angelina Jolie - put the house on the market earlier this year and at one point Reese Witherspoon was keen on purchasing it.
