What’s better than an average-yet-totally-sexy selfie from Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder? How about one of him on the set. And if we’re going to be specific, how about the front yard of the Salvatore’s vamptastic manor. We never knew just how residential their location was, but now we can say we’ve seen their entire living situation.

“Handling some #GMB/grownmanbusiness today from the warm Salvatore front yard... Being grateful for so many things-including the artistry of this bad-ass set design that's inside, not out in the cold... Photo Cred: Vampire Diaries Cinematographer turned fearless Director Darren Genet,” Ian wrote on Instagram, making us all swoon.

We have to say that we absolutely love the inside of the Salvatore’s huge house (the gothic chic look has been wowing us for five seasons), but we never knew they had neighbors! From the front yard — if you can look past Ian showing off his sexy bod — you can see other driveways and streetlights. Who knew the Salvatore’s were living it up in the burbs. We always imagined their casa being somewhere in the woods.
