Bay Area Architects: Edward E. Young
Edward Eyestone Young, born in Missouri, moved to San Francisco in 1902. He obtained his State Architectural license in 1905.
During his thirty-year career, Young designed almost six hundred residential buildings, many in small groups of adjacent buildings.

This apartment building stands on the northwest corner of California Street and Buchanan Street. To the west on California Street is Temple Sherith Israel. To the north on Buchanan Street is the Brutalist building which houses Sutter Health's CMPC Pacific Campus.
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.
The building hides behind a large Ficus microcarpa nitida.
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.
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.
