The pair moved to the 15.3-acre Ventura County ranch in 1979 and were married in the home's living room in January 1980.
The Victorian-style house, built in 1892, contains some of its original Victorian features, antique stained-glass windows and fireplaces in the family room and kitchen.
The mountain-view ranch includes Syrah grape vines, fruit trees, a pond, equestrian facilities and a 4,500-square-foot hangar where McQueen kept his motorcycles.
McQueen, who died in 1980 at 50, appeared in such films as "The Magnificent Seven" (1960), "The Great Escape" (1963), "Papillon" (1973) and "The Towering Inferno" (1974).
The buyer, a golf pro from Wood Ranch Golf Club in Simi Valley, is building a couple of golf holes and a grass tennis court on the property. He also is reviving the vineyards, said listing agent Doug Puetz of Keller Williams Realty's Calabasas office. Puetz estimated he received about 150 inquiries about the property, including some from overseas.
Alexander Torres of Pacific Realty Center represented the buyer.
