Magazine-worthy good looks and a clean-lined transitional aesthetic come together in an incredible house on the western edge of Bluffview in Northwest Dallas.
Located at 8819 Lakemont Dr., this property was created by Robert Hopson Construction Group for a local client as a custom home. But life circumstances changed and now this remarkable new build, which has the kind of bespoke features you wouldn’t get in a spec home, is on the market, represented by Michelle Hopson with Ebby Halliday Realtors.
“The floorplan is geared toward amazing entertaining possibilities with an open floorplan and a combined living-kitchen-dining area with a great wet bar area, and all of that flows to the outdoor living area,” Hopson said. “Also, this house has the most storage I’ve ever seen, like a finished-out storage area on the second level, attic storage, and storage built into the room designs.”
There’s plenty of room for a family to spread out and enjoy this house with five bedrooms, six full bathrooms, one half bath, three living areas, a home office, and 5,641 square feet on two stories. Located near West Northwest Highway and Midway Road, the back of the property overlooks the lush Bachman Lake Park.

These photos speak for themselves and show off the crisp, bright design of this Northwest Dallas house. Privacy was built into that design.
“I love the design of the courtyard entrance and gated breezeway that takes you into the courtyard — the house is so private because of that,” said Hopson. “Details such as limestone stair treads, three-car garage, designer tile, art niches, and custom closets together distinguish this house as a luxury custom build.”
Along with the main house, this property includes a private guest suite and a private office suite with wet bar, all opening to that beautiful interior courtyard. Wow.
The heart of the home is the kitchen-living-dining area with a wall of steel windows overlooking the park. In the kitchen, you’ll find double-height white cabinets, quartz countertops along the perimeter and stone on the oversized island, which offers storage on both sides. There’s also a huge walk-in pantry, butler’s pantry, double ovens, and built-in refrigerator-freezer.
Beautiful hardwood floors carry throughout this space with a gas log fireplace with floor-to-ceiling contemporary surround. Further back, a wet bar with designer tile backsplash, double-height cabinets, and quartz countertops.
The downstairs master is a sight to behold, particularly the ensuite, oversized bath and finished-out walk-in closet.
“The master measures 24-by-15 with big steel windows, recessed lights, and hardwood floors,” Hopson said. “The bathroom and its massive walk-in closet are what impresses a lot of homebuyers, too.”
In the bathroom, you’ll find high-end tile treatment, an oversized frameless glass shower, soaker tub, dual sinks, and marble everywhere. The closet is finished with floor-to-ceiling storage and hanging areas, task lighting, and a center island dresser.
The luxury features and clean-lined looks don’t stop with these spaces, though. Secondary bedrooms and their bathrooms receive equal treatment and look marvelous, too.
A guest suite is separated from main house, which would be perfect as a nanny space or mother-in-law suite.
With over 5,600 square feet, there’s plenty of room for specialty rooms, like a first-floor study with built-in desk and shelves and an upstairs game room/family room with a wet bar. Just like the rest of the house, you’ll find hardwood floors, recessed lights, and steel windows.
A highlight is the office, separated from the main house, but still under the same roof. It has its own entrance, full bathroom, and wet bar.
This house is not just a pretty face; it offers quite a few “green” features, including 16+ SEER variable speed HVAC, double pane windows, foam insulation, high efficiency water heater with recirculating hot water, and insulated doors.
In back, families will love the outdoor living options with a fireplace, kitchen, room for couches and a table, as well as space to install a swimming pool. I love that the builder kept most of the mature trees on the property — they add so much to the ambiance.
Being so close to Bachman Lake, this property is located in a floor plain. The builder exceeded FEMA safety guidelines for a 100-year flood by making the finished floor elevation four feet higher than required. There is also a steel retaining wall, another added safety feature from flooding.
This Northwest Dallas new construction luxury home is listed by Michelle Hopson with Ebby Halliday Realtors for $2.5 million. For more information or to schedule a private showing, call Michelle at 469-583-5441.
