I prefer the shape of your trees over just the whip like growth of some trees. From what I've seen, really healthy peach trees will send out lots of side branches their first year if they've got room.

Do you have any photos of the trees?

I think close to the house will also be an excellent site because peaches seem to be my earliest bloomers, and the heat from the home should hopefully help with protecting it from late frosts.
Good luck with your peaches!
