If I were you with a patch this size and selling - cut it and keep it cut, put some lovely pots with spring flowers at strategic places to distract from it. Trying to establish a new lawn with the winter we have had and with the cost, time, hard work and up keep etc I don't think will add greatly to the price. If your father had a good established garden - the shrubs, daffodils etc will help to lift the garden and any gardener buying it will look on it as a challenge, any non gardener won't notice imo. Hopefully, you will sell (with a garden this size) to someone who likes gardening or can afford a gardener and who will restore your father's garden with lots of love.
