Built in 2004, the old-world style home was ornate and outdated – far from what new homeowners Michael and Laura Marlin wanted. But, when they saw a symbol associated with their youngest son replicated in the pool bath mural, they knew it was meant to be their forever home.

The renovation was extensive, but with help from Classic Stone, Kohler, ProSource, Bennett Custom Homes, interior designer Alicia Dale and other professionals, the house became Laura and Michael’s dream home.

Cambria, supplied by Classic Stone, was instrumental in that transformation – especially in the kitchen and master bath. The Marlin’s fell in love with Cambria after seeing it showcased at a home show years ago and knew they wanted it featured prominently in their new home.

“Cambria has a very distinctive look, a high quartz content, plus it’s stain-resistant, American-made and offers a transferable, lifetime warranty,” says Lisa Myers, business development manager for Classic Stone.

The kitchen features a generously sized mitered island with a full height backsplash in Cambria. Alicia designed the master shower to utilize floor-to-ceiling 10-foot full slabs of Cambria, so no grouting was necessary. The vanity countertop is mitered as well. And, the plumbing fixtures and floor tile were supplied by Kohler.

“Cambria gave me the look I was going for,” Marlin says. “We have really enjoyed the overall process of making this home ours.”
