Unusual tree (for me) in SE Wisconsin

I wish I had a photo to post. Maybe get one in a day or two. The tree has compound leaves, but the leaflets have a common base, growing radially from that base. It has 7 leaflets, strongly toothed, not lobed. Bright yellow leaflets this time of year. It looks very healthy, and is growing on top of a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan (micro climate type area). It's next door to my stepson's house. Any suggestions on what to start looking for from that description?

Maybe chestnut. I don't remember the leaflets having a strong central vein, and I think the distal ends of the leaflets were round, not pointed. Definitely palmately compound leaves, and the leaf margins look like what I see for horse chestnut. I'll be at their house in the next few days and I'll take a closer look. It certainly seems like the most likely ID. Thanks.
