The front door of Mr. X's house faces East. Then the back door of Mr. X's house faces West (the back door that is situated directly opposite to the front door).

$\therefore$ The direction of the point $\text{Mr. X}$ is now located at with respect to the starting point is North-West.

So, the correct answer is $(D).$
