Trouble Modeling An Arched Doorway

I am trying to model a door that recesses into the wall with hard side corners and a smooth, shallow arch (as pictured).

I thought this would be very easy, and have modeled other geometry in the scene (seemingly complicated) in a fraction of the time, but have found myself struggling with this door.

What I have now is a sloppy workaround (multiple edge loops for shaping), a poorly executed extrude with bad edge flow.

Does it have to be one geo?
I would have cut a hole using Boolean then create the archway separate.
You can build that the same as in real life too.
