Best method for cabinet door "concealed" opening

Alright so here I have a piece I'm working on (fireplace built in) and I can't figure out the best way to do what I want.

Here is a rough diagram of the portion I am working on where the left side is supposed to open to the right but when closed , look like it's all just one wall. So in that sense a "concealed" cabinet door. The trouble I'm having is that none of the hinges I have tried are able to open. The mitered boards on the door get caught on the boards on the cabinet. Is there any sort of hinge I can get that either shifts the door to the left or forward when you go to open it?

aside from a hinge, I'm thinking I can miter half of the miter on the cabinet door to the opposite side and it would still somewhat blend in, but if there is a way for the cabinet door maple and cabinet maple to sit completely flush with the ability to open, I would prefer that. thanks

Hi and welcome! Please post a picture rather than a link and we'll try to help.

First timers posting links don't get much response around here. We tend to worry about sketchy links.

Have you looked at SOSS hinges? Note that they require very precise installation.
