This Victorian residence is largely obscured by invasive ficus nitida.

For several years, I lived in a San Francisco house with curved bays similar to this. I heard that curved bays were popular in San Francisco Victorian houses because of the many ship carpenters skilled in building wooden hulls.

Arthur Conan Doyle House at 2151 Sacramento Street in San Francisco "Sir Arthur Conan Doyle House" at 2151 Sacramento Street and the Apartment House at 2153 Sacramento Street

This apartment building faces Lafayette Park.

The most interesting building in the block is the Beaux Arts building next door at 2151 Sacramento Street which was designed by architect Mel I. Schwartz for Dr. Albert Abrams and built in 1921. A plaque on the front of the building asserts that "this house, built in 1881, was once occupied by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle."

The consensus is that the house was built in 1920 or 1921, not 1881, and that Sir Arthur never occupied it. The creator of Sherlock Holmes did visit San Francisco in 1923 and may have dropped in to visit Dr. Abrams.

2241 Sacramento Street in San Francisco Designed by Edward E. Young Three distinguish apartment buildings near Lafayette Park: 2101 Sacramento Street by H. C. Baumann, 2205 Sacramento Street by C. A. Meussdorffer and 2241 Sacramento Street by Edward E. Young
2241 Sacramento Street
Photographed 19 September 2019

The apartment building at 2241 Sacramento Street turns its side to the street and faces the house next door.

Although this configuration is not typical in San Francisco, it is not uncommon in older residential neighborhoods where homes were designed by architects for affluent clients. Other examples are 2233 and 2255 Lyon Street by Willis Polk, 2600 Washington Street by Edgar A. Mathews, and Mark Zuckerberg's home above Dolores Park.
