I don't know Curriehill that well, specifically, but Currie is really nice. Great access to the west, but also routes into the city centre and the city bypass is nearby. Not as many amenities as you get closer to the city centre. Heriot Watt Uni' campus is nearby.
I think @wizardofosmium lives near(ish) to this area. He might have some more local knowledge.

Currie isn't too bad, my sister stayed there for a while and my kids went to Currie high school.
The station at Curriehill is handy for getting to Edinburgh city centre as are LRT busses.
I'm near Juniper Green, I like the area, for me it's great to be able to get public transport to the city centre in less than an hour and I can be in the Pentland hills on foot in half that time.
The pubs in the area aren't too bad either.
Ask me anything and I'll try to help.
